The Framework Knitters Museum in Ruddington will be holding a spectacular May Day Bank Holiday event
Paul Baker, the manager of the museum, said “We are keen to bring back the traditional May Day celebrations and our historic site is the ideal venue. The May Day Bank Holiday was traditionally an annual holiday to celebrate the economic and social achievements of workers. We look forward to welcoming visitors to the event and sharing traditional crafts and entertainments”.
The museum celebrates the lives of the Framework Knitters who produced hosiery and lace. Visitors can observe the machines in action and are invited to have a go on our sock machines. The site includes two workshops, cottages, a chapel and a delightful garden.

The ‘Workers Playtime’ event will feature music and dance as well as an opportunity for visitors to ‘have-a-go’ at traditional crafts. The event will feature demonstrations of basket weaving, spinning and other crafts. Morris Dancers will be in attendance to entertain throughout the day and a traditional barrel organ will provide a suitable musical accompaniment. Other crafts and entertainments will be announced shortly.
