Book Tickets Online


On the second floor of the venue there is space for exhibitors: each year we invite local artists/voluntary community groups the opportunity to promote their work in our exhibition space in the Windmill's open season (between March - September). Updated details of exhibitors are available to download via the Windmill webpage.

Please note that we are not open at present for the 2020 season due to the COVID19 pandemic. Please check the website for further updates.

Toilets, including disabled toilets and baby changing facilities, are accessible via the Mill Arts & Events Centre situated next to the Windmill.
