The Scottish Diaspora Tapestry in Doncaster Minster – #IloveDN for heritage #DoncasterIsGreat for #Art & #Photography

Scottish Diaspora display

The beautiful Scottish Diaspora Tapestry is currently on display in Doncaster Minster. The tapestry was the brainchild of the Prestoungrange Arts Festival and was created by people from 25 world worldwide communities with connections to Scotland. This will obviously be of interest if, like me, you have Scottish ancestry, but there is actually a deep connection for all Doncastrians.

English tapestries

Of the dozen or so English panels four are from Doncaster and celebrate significant Donny people and events…

Earl Henry

Ivanhoe

Jack Kane

Nigel Gresley

But even if you have no connection to Scotland or Doncaster the Scottish Diaspora Tapestry is worth a visit for the sheer vibrant beauty of seeing these wonderful stitched pieces set against the backdrop of the minster.
