PICNIC IN THE PARK 2016 - LOUGHBOROUGH"S BIG BIRTHDAY
200 Years Since the Luddites Came to Town!
As part of Loughborough's birthday celebrations, on Saturday 25th June 2016 at Picnic in the Park in Queen's Park, Loughborough, there will be a "Ludd Hub" stand where, during the afternoon, a series of Luddite-themed events are planned. The Sherwood Lads will be performing music from the period and a reading of the last words of the men caught and condemned will be given. Lord Byron will make an appearance to recite his maiden speech to the House of Lords, lamenting the utter misery that prevailed among the framework knitters of the Midlands. Come and see lace being made and take the town's Luddite trail. A free handout explaining the story of Loughborough's lace-making heritage and its destruction by the Luddites will be available. Two publications, The Lace Makers Story and The Last of the Luddites, will be available for purchase, with a chance to meet the authors. Visitors are encouraged to come dressed in the costume of the time if they wish. Take part in the first leg of the re-enactment of the loyal workers' march to Tiverton in Devon. The ceremonial start to the walk will be conducted by present day descendants of the mill owners John Heathcoat and John Boden. The core group of walkers planning to repeat the walk, are aiming to reach Tiverton within 14 days.
