Tonight at Derby Assembly Rooms 7pm celebrate the Luddites with Sinfonia Viva & Ruddington Framework Knitters’ Museum Full Circle Film Footage

Ruddington Framework Knitters’ Museum and Bolsover District Council and @sinfoniavivauk Sinfonia ViVa mark the 200th anniversary of the Luddite uprising. 180 young people from across Derby and Bolsover will join Sinfonia ViVa to perform this new work themed around the Luddites @DerbyLIVE.

To enhance the performance MACE’s Full Circle Project has transferred some of the Framework Knitting Museums films to DVD for use as a backdrop to the oratorio written by James Redwood and Hazel Gould.

You will soon be able to view a clip from the film  on the MACE catalogue here: 

The interactive afternoon performance is specifically designed for primary school groups, with supporting materials linked to the national curriculum provided in advance to help prepare you for the concert.
