Kendal Quaker Tapestry set to offer free admission for a fortnight
9:00am Sunday 3rd November 2013 in News
A KENDAL museum is celebrating a successful summer tour with a fortnight of free entry for visitors in December.
The Quaker Tapestry Museum on Stramongate sent a selection of its 77 tapestry panels on tour between May and October, meaning the embroidery was seen by an additional 15,000 visitors.
The mini visiting exhibitions were requested by Mountmellick Museum in Ireland, Ironbridge Gorge Museum in Shropshire, the National Needlework Archive at Greenham Common Berkshire and Southwell Minster in Nottinhamshire.
The panels were also unexpectedly dispatched to locations in Kendal when the main exhibition space was closed for urgent repairs ahead of it opening for Easter.
The usual admission charge of £7.50 is being waived from December 2-14 from Monday to Saturday (10am to 5pm).
General manager Bridget Guest said: “We’ve had an amazing 2013 season and we want to celebrate that with free entry to the museum before we close for winter.”
