The Tapestry of Bayeux – An early Mile Stone in a long history of Love and Hate

This time it can perhaps be described as a gesture of love in the midst of a divorce trial. French President Emmanuel Macron announced in January the loan of this 11th  Century treasure to the United Kingdom. The display will take place in about two years. The location has still to be decided. The tapestry depicts the famous Battle of Hastings in 1066. Its current role in European Politics is to assure the United Kingdom that Europe will be a good friend to Islanders regardless of the Brexit. For the time being, it can even be viewed as an offer of reconciliation, an invitation to the UK to re-consider the Brexit.

Our speaker is Roy Mepham who, as we know from our English Club “Brexit Evening” a year ago, is a former Englishman who obtained German citizenship due to his distaste for the Brexit initiative. Roy is also a Francophile, speaks fluent French and has walked many a mile in the French countryside enjoying its attractions. Roy will untangle the complicated and sometimes mysterious history of the tapestry and open a discussion on the role its display in the UK may have in the current political upheaval.
Fluent and fairly fluent speakers of English - native and non-native, from all nations - are welcome to join our cultural and social events. Membership is free, but a charge is made at the door for refreshments. Doors open at 6.30 p.m., and the programme begins at 7. Advance registration is not necessary, you can sign up during the evening.
