Easter steams ahead at Queen Street Mill

21 March 2016

Burnley's Queen Street Mill Textile Museum (QSM), is hosting activities for all the family over the Easter weekend.

The mill's 19th century steam-powered weaving engine, Peace, will be in action throughout the weekend, driving over 300 looms in the weaving shed.

There will be clog dancing performances by Rossendale Clog Heritage and Littleborough Oakenhoof Cloggers on Easter Monday from 12.30pm to 4pm.

County Councillor Marcus Johnstone, Lancashire County Council's cabinet member for environment, planning and cultural services, said: "There's some really entertaining activities going on this Easter for families, including experiencing the sights and sounds of the mill at work.

"An Easter trail will keep any younger visitors occupied exploring the museum, while they learn at the same time."

The mill will be open as follows:

Friday 25th March (Good Friday) from 12 noon to 5pm

Saturday 26th March (Easter Saturday) from 12 noon to 5pm

Sunday 27th March (Easter Sunday) from 12 noon to 5pm

Monday 28th March (Easter Monday) from 12 noon to 5pm

Entry to the museum is free for Burnley residents and accompanied children under 16. For non-residents admission costs £3 for adults and £2 for concessions.
