Ruddington Framework Knitters' Museum
The award-winning Ruddington Framework Knitters' Museum is a small independent working museum, established by the efforts of the local community.

Step back in time and see this unique complex of listed frameshops, cottages and outbuildings, arranged around a garden courtyard, together with a former chapel, in which many of the knitters worshipped.  

The site has been restored to show the living and working conditions of the framework knitters who occupied it throughout the nineteenth century.

Forth Annual Family Garden Party at the Museum

The Framework Knitters Museum in Ruddington will be holding their fourth annual Garden Party and spectacular musical event on Bank Holiday Monday, 31st August 2015

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 from our unique Textile Emporium.

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, 31st August, from 11am – 4pm (museum opens at 11.00am). Admission is free.
