The sun shone on Spon Spun
We were lucky again with the weather for the second of this year’s Open Days, which coincided with a brand new festival for our area, Spon End. ‘Spon Spun’, part of the Albany Theatre’s ‘Arts for Life’ programme, celebrated the art of storytelling as well as the historic area itself. Very apt, as there was some spinning of actual yarn going on as well!
As part of the Spon Spun events line-up, a short play was performed in the garden at The Weaver’s House. Even Lady Godiva herself visited the house as part of the celebrations!
You can watch a video about the Art Trail including storytelling at The Weaver’s House. This clip starts at The Weaver’s House, so just rewind to the start if you would like to watch the whole video.
Alongside the festival excitement, the house attracted many visitors for our usual programme of tours and talks with the opportunity to examine the original medieval features of the house.
Guests of all ages sampled weaving, wattling and of course the homemade cakes!
Now that summer does seem to finally be icumen in, we’re looking ahead to our June Open Day which will be based on the theme of ‘crafts’.
