Arts and Culture

An inspirational place for artists and art lovers

A cultural destination with a contemporary art gallery, growing studio artist community, creative courses and events.

Creativity and culture are at the foundation of the regeneration of Sunny Bank Mills. In 2023 we celebrated 10 years of arts and culture at the Mills.

Our unique industrial spaces inspire and engage through their history and that of their communities, both past and present.

Whether you are shopping in the light and tranquil former cloth warehouse that houses the Gallery, learning on a creative course in the Spinning Mill or The Twisting Studios, or attending an event in the atmospheric Old Woollen, you will share our experience of these amazing spaces and create your own wonderful memories.
