New mill town on show at Queen Street Mill

7 August 2015

The model Victorian mill town being created at Queen Street Mill Textile Museum will be on display on Wednesday 26 August.

At the event the new town, designed for the museum's 'Become a Mill Town Extraordinaire' activity, will be named and everyone who has contributed to it will be presented with a certificate.

The event is free to attend and will take place from 1pm to 1.30pm.

Jennifer Ingham, Lancashire County Council's museum manager at Queen Street Mill, said: "Over the summer, anyone interested in design has been given the chance to plan the mill town.

"We are very excited to be revealing and celebrating the completed mill town, as well as recognising everyone who contributed to it."

Admission to Queen Street Mill is £3 for adults and £2 for concessions. Accompanied children go free.
