World Textile Days

Making World Textile Days COVID safe for you

In 2020 we managed only one World Textile Day. Our visitors – while relatively few – were very grateful for something positive in an otherwise negative year.

In 2021 we hope to delight you with our planned programme of expert guest speakers, exhibits and on-site catering: everything you need for a great textile day out.

If government restrictions or common sense say so, we’ll scale back and adapt to create a COVID safe event for you to enjoy.

Make sure you are signed up for our e-Newsletter for up-to-date info and announcements.
