As part of national Heritage Open Days. The national theme this year is ‘edible England’ and this immediately made us think of the amazing local producers we’ve met over the last few years. Our event will give you a taster of what the village produces and what the new museum will be in October.
We have the Ruddy Fine Gin Company with their botanicals foraged in the gardens of Ruddington and our friends from the Frame Breakers pub with their chutneys and pies. There will be a chance to make edible lace from patterns in our own collection. This last one has come from our Diamond Village project where artists and locals have been pooling their skills to celebrate the village’s rich textile heritage. We’ve scanned and 3D printed historic knitted lace to make moulds so that you can cast icing lace to decorate cakes.
There will also be mini tours of the new museum to give visitors a flavour of what to expect when we open fully on October 20th. This is a free event for Heritage Open Days. No need to book. Put your name down for a timed mini tours on arrival.
