Three more sleeps until Heritage Open Days!
Well, technically it’s only two until the festival begins but we are open from Friday so that’s when we’re counting it!
Here’s a handy summary of what’s happening here at The Weaver’s House:
We’re open 10 – 4pm on each day. Our suggested last admission time is 3.30pm.
Please note that the Solar room containing the loom is not accessible during Heritage Open Days.
Friday 8: This is a ‘Reduced’ Open Day, and we won’t have any demonstrations happening, but guides will be on hand to answer questions. A great opportunity to avoid the rush! Please note that we are not serving refreshments on Friday but our neighbours at the Oasis Cafe over the road will be open from 12. The cafe is newly refurbished so pop in and check it out!
Saturday 9 and Sunday 10: Our regular Open Days run over the weekend to celebrate both Heritage Open Days and the end of a great 2017 season! We’re joined by special guests The Heritage Pantry (previously known as The Heritage Cake Company) providing tasty treats.
Sunday only: At 11am our weaving project will be cut from the table loom and there will be an opportunity to view the completed cloth throughout the day as part of the Spon Spun Art Trail. Also featured in the Art Trail is Keith Watts’s new painting of The Weaver’s House which will be shown at The Old Dyer’s Arms. This is just a few minutes walk from The Weaver’s House itself, crossing the Spon Bridge over the River Sherbourne. The Art Trail starts at 12.
We’re delighted to be taking part in Coventry’s Heritage Open Day family trail so you can pick up a form from us and join in the fun. There’s so much going on in Coventry for Heritage Open Days this year, check out the list of venues here.
If you pick up or download a brochure, you’ll spot that it’s colour coded to help you pick out which venues are nearby, to help plan your day. We’re in the green zone – see you there!
