The Tapestry had never before been exhibited together
in one place until Alma Place opened in October 2001, although
some panels were displayed at different venues around the
country to mark the Millennium, including the museums in Callington,
Helston, and Royston and at the Gorsedd in Falmouth.
panels are displayed at Alma Place as a trail that starts
at the entrance to the Cornish Studies Library. It continues
down the stairs into the Market Way courtyard, where the majority
of the panels are hung.
Brochures, giving a brief description of each panel and the
names of the embroiderers, and other souvenir items depicting
the tapestries, are on sale in the Library and some of the
shops in Market Way.
The permanent display of the complete Tregellas Tapestry at
Alma Place is the first phase of the Redruth Education and
Economic Arts Partnership. This project has similar aims to
those of Rita Tregellas Pope, and it is fitting that such
a superb work of art is on display in the heart of Cornwall.
