LSM on tour
Sat 4th & Sun 5th March 2017
Bradford Industrial Museum, Moorside Mills, Moorside Road, Bradford, BD2 3HP.
The weekend will be as follows: Slightly different times at this location. Instead of 11 – 5, we open for trading at 10am on both days, all stalls open and trading up to 4pm. There will be entertainment on at 12 outside with the amazing drums of Deatbeats www.facebook.com/Deatbeats
Recruiting for the Coffee Jousting (that’s right, we do things different at LSM!) commences from 1pm for the tournament to take place at 2pm. (Rules on coffee jousting are on a separate post/tab on the LSM website). Captain Cumberpatch’s Curious Creations will be donating medals for the prizewinners (both 1st and 2nd) and one also for the Coffee. Jousting Beanmaster (the host).
At 3.30pm a flying display from one of Amy Jo Lawrance’s owls from her Flying Squadron https://www.facebook.com/TheFlyingSquadron.
There will be all sorts of machinery steamed up and running on both days. There will be traders on two floors – ground and 1st which will not be all the same people on both days. The traders will be accessible to all. Most of the buildings are disabled accessible with the exception of the upper floors of the cottages and a few steps down to the trolleybus and tram.
Dogs are not allowed on site with the exception of assistance dogs. Anyone with a small pet that is carried (owl, hedgehog, skunk etc) please be aware that any mess caused (by whatever means) from your livestock must be cleaned up immediately and safely. There will be an all day tombola to raise money for a named charity which all the traders will be donating to. A vintage tearoom will be there for the weekend selling lovely home made cake and cuppas as well as a few hot food vendors on the outdoor area (as there’s nowhere else close really for normal food).
Don’t forget this museum is free admission to see all their exhibitions. We hope that all visitors will be making donations to help keep them running!
Also please be aware there are no cash point machines on the site.
