Spaces for hire
We have a variety of spaces available for hire on their own or in combination – perfect for meetings, networking sessions, classes, art and craft workshops, rehearsals, massage, therapy sessions, weddings, parties, films, conferences and courses. We have B4RN (Broadband for the Rural North) hyperfast broadband throughout the mill: wifi is available in all our spaces and wired access can be made available for groups of up to 10.
We’re a showcase venue for environmentally aware events, as we are run on 97 per cent locally generated renewable energy. We encourage cycling (we have showers), car sharing, and the use of public transport.
Linda in our café serves freshly made food during the week. She is happy to discuss catering for your event, or we have a list of other approved caterers. We are fully licensed and can usually provide a bar for evening events.
We try to keep our prices affordable and flexible, and to help new enterprises. We are keen to encourage networking groups to meet at the Mill, and offer a special rate of £1 per person attending for the first few meetings. We offer a discount to Mill tenants and Lancaster Cohousing residents, and a discount for people paying for spaces in advance. You can see our prices here.
We have a grant from Halton Lune Trust to support music at the Mill. So for music events we can be flexible on room hire costs. We can also cover the costs of poster design, print and distribution; and we can provide our stage and (very small) PA system.
