Bridport, Saturday 23rd May




A celebration of Bridport’s Rope and Net Industry returns for another year!

ropewalk-fairPlans are gathering speed for Bridport’s second Ropewalk Fair, which this year will be over the weekend of 8th-10th may.  Designed primarily to highlight Bridport’s unique rope making past, it also celebrates the current netting industry. Furthermore, the event is designed to raise much needed funds for the Museum and the Literary and Scientific Institute’s redevelopment projects.

Now is the chance for people to get involved in a variety of ways!

Under its new manager, Susan Warren, who grew up in West Dorset and went to   school in Dorchester, the Electric Palace will continue as a venue for great music, live comedy and film, whilst expanding its range of events for families, children, and older members of the Bridport and West Dorset community.

net-machine2Bridport Museum are seeking people to help them identify a new and exciting collection of rope and net making machinery as part of their redevelopment plans. The aim to rebuild them and display them in the refurbished museum so visitors can really see how rope and net were made.

You may have heard that we have  entered an exciting phase of re-development which has come about as a result of a bequest from the Sanctuary family of the contents of their museum which was formerly located at Uploders. Part of that bequest consisted of some rope and net machinery which had been dismantled and is now in pieces.
