Magnificent Mill Event

Emerald Ant are inviting families to their ‘Magnificent Mill’ event at Sturminster Newton Mill on July 18th, 1 – 4pm.

This is an Emerald Ant project with local schools and the Sturminster community. The aim is to inspire local families in this very special ancient mill and to engage people in making quality celebratory art.

The event will feature a trail of artwork created by children at William Barnes Primary and Yewstock Special School. Excitingly, they are running real live workshops with children in the project tent at the mill. There will also be ‘Junkyard’ musical performances by members of Ensemble BASH, with local players.

The project is funded by Dorset Performing Arts Fund, the Southwest Museums Development Fund, Dorset Council and the Arts Council of England. A second project at Walford Mill will follow in September / October

It is a free family event. There is no need to book. Please find more information at
