Objects and Stories Exhibition
21st Sept to 5th Nov 2019

The exhibition is being held in the Framework Knitters Museum Chapel in Ruddington, and has been curated by local volunteers with support from Nottingham Trent University staff and students.

We will be presenting a wonderful collection of objects from local residents, each of which has a fascinating story behind its existence. They include historical photographs and documents, strange souvenirs from across the world, vintage household items, and an object that seems to defy explanation.

Our objects have been kindly loaned by members of Ruddington’s community, and each will leave you with something to think about.
