Sunny Bank Mills Magical Christmas Market returns on Friday, 25 November to Sunday, 27 November. 

Each day, more than 50 local makers and artists will fill the first floor of our iconic 1912 Mill with hand crafted jewellery, ceramics, textiles, prints, homeware, cards and more.

There’s a children’s sensory play area and children’s craft activities, and you can pop into the Arctic Café for mulled wine and homemade cake. It’s a day out for the whole family.

We’re running some great workshops throughout the weekend, including a Woven Bauble class in the Weaving Shed and Natural Dyeing workshop in our Spinning Mill Studio.

Book now via our website and make a day of your visit to the Mill. You can also pop in and chat to some of our artists who will have original work on sale. In the Twisting you can visit Nel Whatmore, Bronte Adam, Jo Woffinden, Jaynie Batty and Eilidh Gilmour; and in the Spinning Mill Studio Mel Davies (Sat/Sun), Penny Pendle Hayes and Maya Stigner.

Elsewhere, the inspiring Art Makers from Henshaws Arts & Craft Centre in Knaresborough are exhibiting in the Art Gallery. The .artmaker exhibition showcases the artists’ incredible talents filling the Gallery with colour and fun. Henshaws supports people living with a range of disabilities to discover their talents, helping them to develop a creative practice and realise their full potential.

On Saturday our textile Archive will be open for guided tours as usual and includes a children’s activity area and mill office, with an Archive trail and hidden sheep to find! Book now via our website.

Many of the Mill’s independent businesses will also be open over our festive weekend. You can visit The Art Rooms and Just Lovett Designs in Red Lane Mill, Ewe Neek and Pampas & Bloom in the Mending Rooms, and School of Sew and SCRAP (Fri/ Sat) in the Spinning Mill, as well as our food and drink outlets – Amity, Botanic Request, Farsley Fire & Smoke, Grumpy’s, Mill Kitchen, and Saint Jude. 

There’s something for the whole family.
