What is the largest millennium project that 370,000 children in 1,700 primary and special schools up and down the land have been beavering away on for months?
Here’s a clue: it’s the same project the New Millennium Experience Company felt it was unable to help fund.
The Millennium Tapestry is a giant patchwork to which each school has contributed one embroidered square metre.
Parts of it will be displayed at exhibitions throughout the year, and it is hoped a “virtual” photographic version will be shown in the Dome.
The Millennium Tapestry Company was relying on funding which didn’t materialise, and is now hoping to sew up some sponsorship deals.
