Second Annual Family Garden Party at the Museum

Garden Party

The Framework Knitters Museum in Ruddington will be holding their second annual Garden Party and spectacular musical event on Bank Holiday Monday, 26th August 2013, 1.00 – 6.00. The event offers FREE entry to the museum and is suitable for all ages.

Why not relax in the beautiful garden at the Framework Knitters Museum and enjoy a day of musical entertainment, tea & cake and textile crafts.  Chill out with the perfect soundtrack to a summer’s afternoon with live music performed by local artists including the return of King Ned Ludd and other singers and performers.  Of course the Garden Party would not be complete without a wide selection of naughty cakes served on the lawn. The museum also offers an opportunity to have-a-go at the circular knitting machines, see craftspeople in action and buy locally made textile gifts.


This is one garden party the weather can’t spoil as the museum has a large chapel on site which will provide the perfect venue should the sun be in short supply.  Paul Baker, the Museum Manager, said “we’re extremely excited about the musical programme this year.  Last year was an overwhelming success with our beautiful garden full of families enjoying the entertainment and cakes and this year we intend to offer a wider range of performers and activities.  We look forward to welcoming visitors to this wonderful free event.” Further details of performers will be advertised on the museum website, facebook and twitter pages

The event takes place on Bank Holiday Monday, 26th August, from 1pm – 6pm (museum opens at 11.00am). Admission is free.

Several attempts were made to popularise different languages…
