Warm Welcomes in Veere

The British Ambassador joins with the Mayor of Veere to celebrate the Tapestry’s arrival in The Netherlands!

It was very much a musical occasion when the Tapestry opened, with the sound of the pipes filling the streets of Veere, the Middleburg Singers entertaining throughout the opening event itself, and the the City Hall’s pin organ mechanism playing Loch Lomond on the half hour for the duration of the exhibition!

We here in Scotland are all incredibly grateful to our hosts in Veere for displaying such enthusiasm, hard work, and friendship throughout their involvement with the Tapestry and its exhibition in The Netherlands.

Below are some extracts from the Dutch press:
