#ThanksToYou Virtual tour launch, 24 November 2019

This year is the 25th Birthday of The National Lottery, and the Friends of the Flaxmill Maltings and Historic England are celebrating the contribution of National Lottery players in supporting good causes over the past 25 years by inviting local residents to join them  in the Visitor Centre on site for the launch of their new virtual tour on Sunday 24th November.  Guests at this free event will be the first to see this new addition to the visitor experience whilst enjoying seasonal mulled wine and mince pies.  

This innovative new tour format, created by local company Seeable Ltd,  will take visitors inside the Main Mill and show them around without actually setting foot inside the building.  This means that the inside of the building can now be seen by those who couldn’t previously access the tours and can also be seen when the building is inaccessible due to the construction schedule.   The accompanying talks will show progress made on the restoration of the Main Mill and Kiln so far and hear about what is happening at the moment with this exciting and challenging project, as well as future plans for the site. 

The virtual tour launch will be held on Sunday 24 November 2019 at the Visitor Centre, Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings.  Pre-booking for timed slots is required and this event is for over 18’s only.  Details of how to reserve a place at this special event and full T&C’s can be found on Eventbrite.
