Earlier this year, French President Emmanuel Macron had a meeting with UK Prime Minister Theresa May. During the meeting, he has offered to lend the Bayeux Tapestry to UK if conditions allow. Where are the places for Bayeux Tapestry to display in UK?
It is a monumental gesture by the French President, considering the fact that the requests for the Bayeux Tapestry were rejected twice. The first rejection was in 1953. The request was for Bayeux Tapestry to display in UK at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. The second time in 1966 was for the 900th anniversary of Battle of Hastings.
According to UK gambling news, the medieval artwork is expected to go on loan in the next few years. However, the move from Musée de la Tapisserie de Bayeux to the UK would require approval and care from experts. What are the odds for some of the places to display such a fragile piece of art?
1. Hastings (12/1)
The Bayeux Tapestry depicts the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The embroidery shows the Norman invasion of UK in a vast picture. One particular scene confirms the death of UK King Harold Godwinson, who was killed by William The Conqueror with an arrow in the eye.
The community of online gambling in UK agrees that a display in the town of Hastings makes sense. For Bayeux Tapestry to display in UK someday, Hastings has 12/1 odds to be the location of exhibition.
2. British Museum (1/5)
On the other hand, the odds for Bayeux Tapestry to display in UK favour the British Museum (1/5). After all, it is the most visited museum in UK with over 7 million visitors per year. A guarantee is given that the Bayeux Tapestry will be seen by the most people here.
A British Museum spokeswoman added “We also have a substantial number of artefacts from Anglo Saxon and Norman England so we could put the tapestry in context. What’s more, we have just the place to show it: the Sainsbury gallery, which is state-of-the-art and 70 metres long. The tapestry is 68.5 metres, so it would be perfect.”
3. Victoria and Albert Museum (8/1)
Finally, you should consider betting on Victoria and Albert Museum to be the display location of Bayeux Tapestry using online gambling promotions in UK. The betting odds are at 8/1. Tristram Hunt, Director of the Victoria and Albert Museum, is excited about the prospect of the Bayeux Tapestry to display in UK.
He said “We have great expertise in terms of conservation and we’re already home to The Devonshire Hunting Tapestries.” Victoria and Albert Museum is more advantageous in the sense that it is the centre for historic British tapestry.
