The Lancashire Tapestry

A new monumental artwork titled ‘The Lancashire Tapestry’ celebrating Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, will be unveiled on 1st June at a very special ceremony at Blackburn Cathedral.

Taking inspiration from the Lancashire industrialists and philanthropists of the past, Lancashire-based business leaders and cultural professionals have come together to create a legacy for the people of Lancashire which celebrates this extraordinary moment in the country’s civic history. And as is only fitting the commission is being woven in recycled cotton and wool in Burnley, Lancashire.

The Lord Lieutenant Lord Shuttleworth and appointed Deputy Lieutenants; Tony Attard OBE and Dennis Mendoros OBE were inspired by time spent at the Harris Museum in Preston, Lancashire viewing the journey of the county and all that has been achieved throughout history by its industrialists.

They wanted to create inspiration for a new piece to represent this work and the culture in Lancashire by stimulating creativity amongst local artists. Working together they created the opportunity and the funding for this visionary opportunity to celebrate our monarch; and the people she has devoted herself to.

The completed ‘Lancashire Tapestry’ and narrative will be on display in Blackburn Cathedral from 2 June until January 2023.
