Bayeux - Show

William’s Cathedral, until January 6th

From December 2nd, the Bayeux Tapestry is back (virtually) with "William's Cathedral", a unique show in Normandy!


Inside the majestic Bayeux cathedral, the entire work, inscribed since 2007 in the UNESCO Memory of the World register, is displayed on the ephemeral screens, specially installed by the teams of Spectaculaires, Allumeurs d'images.

At the same time, the architecture and choir of the Cathedral are enhanced by a precise and dynamic play of lights.


Commissioned by Odon de Conteville, bishop of Bayeux and half-brother of William the Conqueror, the thousand-year-old embroidery thus virtually finds its first jewel: the nave of the cathedral, where it was exhibited for the first time in July 1077.


A unique show, free, all public, from December 2, 2017 to January 6, 2018!


> All the informations (dates, hours...) on the dedicated page "William's Cathedral"
