End of Harvest Celebration – Ulster Folk Museum

Harvest wasn’t only a time of hard work, it was also a joyous celebration of the abundance of nature. Rural communities came together during harvest to help each other gather crops and store them for the winter months and by the end of harvest, it’s a cause for celebration.

Join us in McCusker’s Pub for a drink and enjoy traditional music and dance, where our Senior Curator of History will be on hand to share her knowledge about the harvest season and answer your questions.

We’ll also be finishing a few harvest jobs like turning flax into fibre now the flax has been pulled. With the leftover straw, you can have a go at making harvest knots and straw ropes.

Or help us collect seeds from the native trees at the museum and learn how to process and store the seed, ready for planting in the spring in an interactive ‘seed collection’ workshop – pre-booking essential.
