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.

School or group visits may be booked during the winter months but are subject to volunteer availability.

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