Wall-hanging celebrating George Eliot

George Eliot wall-hanging

We are currently displaying a beautiful contemporary wall-hanging, made by members of the Women’s Institute, in our George Eliot gallery. The hanging is about author George Eliot’s life and the places in Nuneaton and its surrounding area that were special to her. It has been made to commemorate the bicentenary year of George Eliot’s birth and the centenary of Warwickshire Federation of Women’s Institutes.

The wall-hanging includes depictions of South Farm where she was born, Griff House where she grew up, All Saints Church which she attended in her childhood, and other local places that provided inspiration for locations in her novels.

It is on display at Nuneaton Museum and Art Gallery from Thursday 12th September to Sunday 15th September.
