The Friends of the Flaxmill Maltings and Historic England would like to invite you to an exclusive event.
As part of the Heritage Lottery Fund's campaign to thank National Lottery players for making wonderful projects across the country possible, we will be offering an exclusive behind the scenes preview of world renowned light artist Andy McKeown’s installation, ‘As Shadows Return’. This will be taking place in the Main Mill.
This is an exclusive opportunity for 36 National Lottery Ticket holders to preview the installation before its official launch later in December. It is also an opportunity to see the progress being made to the restoration of the world’s first cast-iron framed building.
The event will comprise a talk on the restoration works, a tour to the top floor of the Main Mill and a chance to meet the artist and hear about 'As Shadows Return'. Visitors will also have an opportunnity to look around the Visitor Centre. Tea and coffee will be available.
Please note that this is a building site and as such visitors need to wear sensible footwear and warm clothing. You will be required to wear hard hats, which will be supplied.
The preview will take place on Friday the 7th of December between 5pm and 7pm.
To secure your place for this event book a free ticket here on Eventbrite. Tickets will be available to book from 9am on Monday the 19th of November.
