Finding Calm & Steadiness Through Uncertainty @ Via Zoom
Apr 10 @ 12:30 pm – 12:55 pm

Ruddington resident Jakki Pritchard – who’s well known in our village for her regular Mindfulness courses in the Old Chapel of the Framework Knitters’ Museum – has taken her sessions online during the outbreak of COVID-19 Coronavirus.

Jakki is concerned for people’s state of mind whilst confined to their homes – and is hoping these FREE Friday sessions of around 20 minutes on Zoom may be helpful.

“This will be a group meditation which is a really nice way of feeling connected to each other” says Jakki.

If you’d like to join today’s session please “like” her Facebook post >>HERE<< in advance to indicate you’ll be taking part – otherwise by email jakki@exercisemindfulness.co.uk or call/text her on 07730187310 beforehand.

It’s hoped these group meditations can run every Friday during the pandemic lockdown. Jakki is also offering free one to one sessions which you can read about >>HERE<<.

Henry Normal in Ruddington – CANCELLED @ Ruddington Library
May 11 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

UPDATE: 18th MARCH 2020
Very sadly his appearances here and elsewhere have now been cancelled due to the COVID-19 #Coronavirus pandemic.

Ruddington Library will be closed until further notice after Saturday 21st March.


Villagers can look forward to something extra-special this spring, as local poet, writer and award-winning TV and film producer Henry Normal brings his funny and accessible poetry to Ruddington Library.

Co-writer of The Royle Family and producer of Gavin and Stacey, Nottingham’s own Henry Normal is coming here to present “a one-hour show packed with fun, poetry, jokes, stories and more!”

His tour of Nottinghamshire libraries is part of Nottingham Poetry Festival 2020.

Henry told RUDDINGTON.info: “I’m doing a FREE gig at EVERY Nottinghamshire Library during April and May – that’s sixty libraries! I don’t think it’s ever been done before. Each event will be 60 minutes and include a guest poet from Nottinghamshire and a poem read from up to 3 people in the audience.”

The Ruddington guest will be poet, performer, playwright and Left Lion journalist Bridie Squires.

There’s more information at www.inspireculture.org.uk/HenryNormal.

As tickets are FREE, advance booking is strongly advised.

Ruddfest – Ruddington Beer & Cider Festival 2020 – POSTPONED @ Ruddfest Marquee & around Ruddington
May 28 @ 12:00 pm

This event usually takes place every year following the last bank holiday in May. The four day “Ruddfest 2020” offers over 200 beers and ciders throughout Ruddington plus live entertainment and lots of food and other drinks choices.


However organisers have had to postpone the 2020 festival due to the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic now taking hold in the UK.


It’s centred around a dedicated beer marquee, stalls and attractions on The Green hosted by The Three Crowns, but also at The White Horse on Church Street, The Victoria Tavern on Wilford Road and The Frame Breakers on High Street. The Bottle Top on High Street will again become a micro bar during these four days.

Amended details will be added here if the festival is rescheduled.

Hopefully we’ll have new dates for your diary soon – to have a #RuddyGoodDayOut on Nottingham City Transport’s Navy 3 (except Sunday) or Green 10 buses – as you won’t wish to be driving!
