About the event

In 2012 the William Morris Gallery are presenting a new exhibition at Leyton Municipal Offices (next to Leyton Library, Leyton tube). The exhibition will introduce visitors to William Morris and his work whilst exploring his historical connection to the local area. Visitors will also be able to find out more about the development project and view plans for the new Gallery.

The spectacular Peacock and Bird carpet designed by Morris & Co. will be on display for the first time. The carpet was donated to the Gallery in 2010 and is the only one of its kind known to exist in the world.

A programme of activities and events will be available for families and adults, check out our what’s on guide for more information.
