Description

We’re saying #ThanksToYou to National Lottery players with this special free event

At Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings we want to say #ThanksToYou and all the National Lottery players who have helped make the restoration of the Main Mill and Kiln possible. This year is the 25th Birthday of The National Lottery, and we’re excited to celebrate the contribution of National Lottery players in supporting good causes over the past 25 years. If you play, then you contributed to The National Lottery Heritage Fund grant of £20.7 million that has made this project possible.

And, to celebrate The National Lottery’s 25th birthday you are invited to join the Friends of the Flaxmill Maltings and Historic England in the Visitor Centre for the launch of our new virtual tour. Be the first to see this new addition to the Centre whilst enjoying seasonal mulled wine and mince pies.

This innovative new tour format will take you inside the Main Mill and show you around without actually setting foot inside the building. Through the virtual tour and accompanying talks you will be able to see progress made so far and hear about what is happening at the moment as well as future plans for the site.

You will hear lots of interesting facts about the history of both the Flax Mill and the Maltings and how the buildings have adapted over time.

We will also share some fun facts about the restoration and how such a big construction challenge has, at times, required some truly innovative thinking.

Working collaboratively, the Friends of the Flaxmill Maltings and Historic England are bringing this building back to life. Representatives of both will be there on the day to answer your questions.

You need to bring your proof of National Lottery ticket purchase with you on the day, and don’t forget to wrap up warm. We are one of hundreds of National Lottery-funded projects across the UK who are taking part in the #ThanksToYou campaign in this special Birthday year.
