Beautiful Buildings at Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings this May Half Term - Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings
Date: Sat 25 May 2024 -
Sun 2 Jun 2024
10.00am - 4.00pm

We’re celebrating beautiful buildings at Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings this May Half Term. Kids go Free into The Mill exhibition, an unmissable display that tells the fascinating story of the building that was the grandparent of the modern skyscraper.

Unlock your family’s inner-architect with A Cardboard Townscape, as we hail Shrewsbury’s diversity of buildings by making as many as we can in cardboard to build a soapbox-Salop. Which one will you make? Will you bring back a beautiful building that is no longer there?

Explore the historic site with The Coronet Trail, a free route that celebrates the building’s clever adaptation in 1897 from a Flaxmill to a barley Maltings.

  • The Mill exhibition and acclaimed Turned Wood Café are open daily through the May Half Term from 10am to 4pm. The Café serves a range of tasty meals, small plates, drinks and of course cake!
  • Cardboard Townscape drop-in activity – Tuesday 28 to Friday 31 May, 11am to 3pm, in the Dyehouse, free activity.
  • The Coronet Trail – Saturday 25 May to Sunday 2 June 2024, 10am to 4pm, starting in the Shop, no charge.

Kids Go Free into The Mill exhibition Saturday 25 May to Sunday 2 June 2024. Book online to guarantee a space. Check for opening times.
