Milling Times

As the water wheel turns we will take you back in time to some of the historical events that took place in this unique working mill.

‘Hell’s Bells! There’s trouble at Mill!’
Give Ann Shaw a hand to knead her dough and bake the best bread this side of Yorkshire for the village fete; join John Wagstaff, the miller’s man, in his search for his missing sack of grain and see if you can solve the mystery of the mill!

Fun, highly interactive performances bring to life some of the historical daily activities, songs and stories of the mill. You will have the chance to see the mill working as part of the performance as well as create your own version of the mill mouse!

Site specific Production for Worsbrough Mill Museum performed June – Aug 2012.

Fantastic-real great mix of storytelling, songs, games, interaction, hands on & humour. Fab for adults too!
