Ruddington’s annual Makers Night is back this month, returning to its original summer spot in the calendar. Organised by the award winning Ruddington Village Market in partnership with the Framework Knitters Museum and the Debbie Bryan Gallery, Makers Night showcases over 70 high quality regional crafters and makers across multiple indoor venues around the village centre, bringing everything from fine art to exquisite jewellery. This year’s Makers Night takes place on Friday 24th June from 4pm until 9pm, and expands on last September’s event by adding even more locations to the line-up, including St Peter’s Church, Ruddington Methodist Hall, the Framework Knitters Museum, Ruddington Conservative Club, The Cottage Hotel, and St Peter’s Rooms.
Stella Dickie of the Ruddington Village Community Partnership, the team behind Makers Night and Ruddington Village Market, said “Last year’s restrictions meant we had to delay the event until September, so this year we’re really excited to bring Makers Night back to its original midsummer date. It’s one of our favourite events of the year, with so many talented artists, designers, makers and crafters coming along. The whole village comes alive, and many of Ruddington’s fabulous indie shops and cafes open late, joining in with their own popup stalls. It all adds to the brilliant atmosphere in the village on the night, with visitors staying to enjoy summer drinks at Ruddington’s bars and pubs.”
