Crafty Addition to Annual Museum Garden Party

King Ned Ludd at Garden Party 2013The Framework Knitters Museum in Ruddington will be holding their annual Garden Party and spectacular musical event on Bank Holiday Monday, 25th August, and this year, for the first time, it will include a unique Summer Craft Fair. The event, which runs from 11am to 4pm, offers FREE entry to the museum and is suitable for all ages.

The Summer Garden Party gives you the opportunity to relax in the beautiful garden at the Framework Knitters Museum and enjoy a day of musical entertainment, tea & cake and 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.  Of course the Garden Party would not be complete without a wide selection of naughty cakes served on the lawn. This year the entertainments include a Summer Craft Fair with makers from around the region.  The museum also offers an opportunity to have-a-go at the circular knitting machines, see craftspeople in action and visit the new Luddite Gallery.

This is one garden party the weather can’t spoil, as this year the museum’s chapel will play host to an indoor craft fair which will be an ideal addition should the sun be in short supply.  Paul Baker, the Museum Manager, said “we’re extremely excited 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 crafts.  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, 25th August, from 11am – 4pm.  Admission is free.

The museum, including the two new galleries, is open Wednesday to Sunday. For opening hours, and for more information, visit [FRAMEWORK KNITTERS MUSEUM].
