Here is a list – in date and time order  – of this week’s events and/or activities which are open to all. Details given include whether you need to book or can just drop-in and contact details for organisers so you can find out more.

But …  you don’t have to join an activity to call in.  Everyone is welcome at The Mill whenever we are open. You can borrow a book from the honesty library to find a perfect summer read, bring your little ones to enjoy all the toys in the playroom, make a cuppa and have a chat – and browse leaflets, flyers and posters on display to  find out what else is going on throughout Waltham Forest. There’s always someone on reception to welcome you and give more information.

All week (Tues, Weds, Thurs, Fri, Sat and Sun)

Our latest art exhibition – Fabrications – is open to view in the living room. The exhibition explores the possibility of using textiles and other soft materials in all sorts of imaginative, amazing and traditional and undtraditional ways.
