A taste of what's in store at museum and mill

Mill Green Museum & Mill is set to close its doors until February 2022 as the site gets ready for an exciting new events calendar over the Spring and Summer months.

Over the winter, staff will be preparing for a fabulous new season of cultural, entertainment and gastronomic activity at the historical site on the River Lea, making it a unique destination for afternoons and evenings out.

The fabulous new season will include mouth-watering events such as bread baking workshops, the return of their famous cream teas using the River Lea mill's very own stoneground, wholemeal flour, and a brand-new Music at the Mill season. There will also be a new permanent Welwyn Hatfield exhibition alongside a rotating programme including displays by local artists.

Before the preparations begin, there's still a last chance to see some great exhibits. 'Welwyn Garden City: By Wisdom and Design' showcases the ideas and inspiration behind the Garden City. 'Wild Things' is an exhibition by local artist, Dagmar Louw, known for colourful wildlife paintings which recognise the beauty of creation and the privilege to live amongst these creatures.

Councillor Bernard Sarson, Executive Member for Leisure and Community Safety said:

Although we're closing for a couple of months, we are very excited at what's in store when we re-open in February. We know that one of the most loved things about the mill and museum is its beautiful setting and we're planning a whole host of events and entertainment that showcase it perfectly.

The last open day for Mill Green Museum & Mill is Sunday 28 November, 1-4pm. This will also be the last day for the Welwyn Roman Baths before their usual winter break.
