Dark Skies Exhibition

The leaflet said there would be a free astronomy exhibition all weekend in the Ballroom at the Swan - but there had been a bit of a problem. The organisers of the event had chosen the same weekend for Dark Skies as a big Science Fair, and all the people selling telescopes and other instruments had gone there instead.
They're hoping to get a better date next year.
So they'd done their best in the room just by the front door, with a few displays and wall hangings, and slide shows, including a little bit about our local Victorian astronomer, the Star Man of Hardwick (mentioned on this blog on 29th January).
And now I want to find a supplier of the fabric that was used for some of the wall hangings, with star fields and the Moon surface and so on printed onto the cotton.
