Come and celebrate Marsh Mill's 221st Birthday

The Big Draw Event - Create an Owl

As part of this years Big Draw, visitors can create a quick owl as part of their visit.
See photos of those created so far…simple to do, and so much fun! (such an ingenious idea which is not only cheap and cheerful, but also good for the environment too!)

We are also still doing Bubble Paintings, which are all going to be made into bunting for our special birthday event from Friday 23rd October. So thank you to all those who have made some so far - there's just one more weekend left to make some more, before the excitement begins.

Apologies for any inconvenience.

The opening exhibition for the new season will be:
