Description

Lace Walks with Chris Matthews
Saturday 17 & Sunday 18 March 2018
Venue: Beginning at Nottingham Castle*, ending in the Lace Market
Distance & Duration: 3.5 miles, 2.5 hours*

Manufactured lace had a momentous impact on Nottingham: helping to change a turbulent county town into a modern industrialised municipality. Within the middle decades of the nineteenth century the development of this industry effected nearly every aspect of town life: economy, urban development, population, public institutions and even political ethos.

In the space of just a few miles, it is possible to see the sheer scale and speed of this change. Local historian and graphic designer Chris Matthews will lead a guided walk, taking in not only the workshops, factories and warehouses but also the streets, housing, parks and buildings transformed by the lace industry. You will receive a free 'lace walks' map, created and designed by Chris Mattews.

Part of the Lace Unravelled public programme funded by Arts Council England's Designated Development Fund.

This ticket admits one person and is for Sunday 18 March, please revisit our main page if you wish to book for Saturday 17 March.

*We will meet outside the Castle gates to begin the walk at 2pm

**Please wear comfortable footware and weather appropriate clothing. If you have any questions contact Colette Griffin on 0115 876 1433 or colette.griffin@nottinghamcity.gov.uk
