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.

Christmas 2016

The Framework Knitters Museum, Ruddington, will be hosting two Christmas events this year – each with their own little twist.

The first event, on Saturday 3 December, is the perfect way to start your family Christmas celebrations. Using the hand-powered knitting machines children will be able to knit their own tube of material which, with the help of the museum volunteers, will be sewn at one end. The children will then be able to personalise their stocking with festive sparkle.

The opportunity to create one of the unusual stockings will be available between 12 pm and 6 pm, and will cost £5 per stocking. Normal admissions prices for the museum apply which, along with the tea room and shop, will be open from 11 am to 4 pm.

 The event is part of a larger programme of activities planned for the Ruddington Christmas Fayre; which will take place across the village from 12 pm to 5 pm and culminate with the Christmas lights being switched on at St Peter’s Church.

Saturday 10th December is the museum’s annual Victorian Christmas event.

Step back in time and enjoy the Victorian surroundings as they are brought to life with traditional music, food and activities. There will be roast chestnuts and crumpets toasted on an open fire to enjoy, while you listen to Christmas carols and music from a traditional barrel organ. Children can even visit Father Christmas in his grotto and receive a special Christmas gift. After dark the museum site will be lit by lantern light to add to the magical atmosphere.

This popular event will take place from 10 am to 5 pm and is free to attend. If you wish to visit Father Christmas there is a charge of £6 per child and it must be booked in advance
