Due to the current Coronavirus outbreak, many attractions are closed and event organisers are cancelling or postponing their events. While we will try to update the information on this site as much as possible, we cannot guarantee to have all the information we would like. Therefore we urge you to check the latest information on the attraction or event’s website or Facebook pages, and to contact them before travelling to avoid disappointment.

It focuses on the development of the hatting industry from its humble beginnings in the cottage industry to the mass production of the early 19th century. Live demonstrations of working machinery.
