From food fairs to festivals, wine tastings to workshops … we love to make things happen at Talton Mill


Not only are our venues available to hire for a variety of different uses, we also love to host our own events and to work in partnership with you to run yours.

We like to try new things and to think out of the box which is why we have run unique events such as ‘An Audience With A Chicken’ and ‘Build a Banger’ sausage making nights, artists markets, food fairs and fundraisers.

We can run bespoke demonstrations and workshops especially for groups, families and friends.  These can be combined with a meal in the Mill Woodhouse should you wish.

Our venues at Talton Mill are very versatile.  If you have an idea for an event or activity please contact us on
