Nottingham Knitting Show 2018

Posted on

If you can travel to Nottingham, do please come along to the West Park Leisure Centre in Wilsthorpe Road, Long Eaton NG10 4AA. The centre is about a mile and a half from Junction 25 on the M1. When you come off the motorway, take the exit to Long Eaton onto Bostock’s Lane. After about half a mile, at the junction with Longmoor Road, turn right onto the B6002. The road bears left and becomes Petersham Road. Continue along the B6002 into Wilsthorpe Road and the Leisure Centre is along this road on the left.

This year our show is on Sunday 8th April and Guest Speakers are Marianne Henio, Bill King and Clair Crowston. The lectures cost an extra £1 each and numbers have to be limited so it’s best to book in advance. If you can’t then don’t worry, as we usually have tickets to sell on the door. The talks are held upstairs, but there are stairs and a lift, so access is easy for everyone. We’ll have hot and cold snacks and drinks available and last year’s excellent caterers will look after us again.

Look out for Andee Knits, Arnold Bennett – the button man, Sue Booth, Clair Crowston, B Hague & Co, Bill King, David and Jason Hampson from The Wool Cabin, Elaine Cater, the Framework Knitters Museum, the Guild of Machine Knitters, Knits ‘n’ Bits from Wendy Piper, Machine Knitting Monthly also with Anjo Designs, Mapperley Knit & Natter Club with demonstrations and displays, Marianne Henio, Nina Miklin, Nottinghamshire Spinners, Weavers & Dyers, Rob Fountain, Erica Thomson and Uppingham Yarns.

  1. Is there parking near the venue.. Janet

    1. Hi Janet

      Thanks for asking and yes, there’s all the parking for the Leisure Centre right outside.

      I also hire a field alongside the building for overflow parking, but last year (and with no warning) the Council let it to a fairground and we didn’t know until on the day that we couldn’t use it. Get there early and you should be okay.

      Best wishes.


  2. I would like to come if anyone else wants to go we could maybe share the costs I’m in Rochester Kent if anyone is near me
