VISITORS will be able to enjoy free Yorkshire Day celebrations at Huddersfield’s Tolson Museum in Ravensknowle Park, Moldgreen, this weekend.
An afternoon jam-packed with entertainment, activities and refreshments will take place on Saturday to celebrate the cultures and traditions of our different communities, all of which have enriched Yorkshire life for generations.
Textile artist Sue Clay will be on hand to offer a felt-making workshop and crafts activities. There will be plenty of Yorkshire music from the renowned Sellers International Youth Band. Amongst the performers are the Kala Sangam dancers and the Kirkburton Rapier Dancers.
A spokeswoman for the museum said: “In the new Community Heritage Room there will be a project to make a giant white rose to be decorated with visitors’ thoughts on what makes Yorkshire special. This will be added to rose bunting made recently by children at Moldgreen Community Primary School. They have worked hard to prepare over 30 impressive huge white roses decorated with poems which encapsulate the spirit of Yorkshire.”
There will also be food and drink, from Yorkshire Puddings to Yorkshire tea room treats. The museum shop will also stock our the legendary ‘Ay-up’ range of T-shirts.
