National Mills Weekend

On Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 May 2024, hundreds of windmills and watermills will open their doors as part of National Mills Weekend – our annual celebration of the heritage and history of mills, and the people who care for them today. 

We’ve rounded up some of the most unmissable National Mills Weekend events across the UK, including free guided tours at our recently repaired Kibworth Harcourt Post Mill. Find your nearest participating mills and get involved with the fun! Remember to share your photos with us @spabmills #NationalMillsWeekend

If you own or manage a mill, this is the perfect opportunity to engage local people, reach new audiences, and inspire the next generation of mill enthusiasts. We've put together some guidance on how to plan your event and tips on how to promote your event for free.
