Join The Old Lawnmower Club on the green, green grass of Milton Keynes Museum

Posted 14th May 2024

The sound of the mower and the smell of freshly cut grass epitomises hazy summer days, and even though we don’t all enjoy dragging the cutter around, we all love the results of a tidy and trim garden.

This weekend, The Old Lawnmower Club will come to Milton Keynes Museum for its annual rally.

The cutting-edge club boasts more than 500 members as fondness for the machines through the years continues to grow.

Anyone who has an interest in the development of these invaluable garden assistants will want to visit during the course of the weekend, with 100s of mowers expected to be lined up for inspection.

Aside from the rare mowers on show by club members, the Museum’s own fine collection will be open; Milton Keynes Museum is home to some of the earliest examples in existence.

The event is ‘edging’ nearer, and everyone is invited to visit on Saturday, May 18 and Sunday, May 19 to check out the machinery of days past, see some in action and say ‘Good mow-ning’ to club members!
