Celebrate Coronation Day with textiles

Important info about timings

Because of the coronation, it’s difficult to be precise about the day’s timings. We aim to fit our activities around live coverage of the coronation and still provide a full programme for our visitors.

We’ve moved Susan Briscoe’s morning talk to 12 pm [midday].

The 2 pm afternoon session – our special Coronation Themed World Textiles Show & Tell – may be similarly affected.  We’ll just have to see on the day. Thanks for understanding.

FREE ENTRY to our exhibition and sale of fair trade textiles

Bringing World Textile Day to the lovely Oxfordshire village of King’s Sutton is truly a treat. We always get a warm reception from our enthusiastic followers. If you’re a regular – welcome back. If you’re a newbie – welcome. You’re in for an inspiring and entertaining textile day out. Below, some pix from past years.
