Based in an old Victorian Mill in Preston, Big Mill is a creative space that is about giving Art, Design and Craft made in Lancashire a platform to be seen and sold.

Big Mill also hosts monthly exhibitions and holds a range of classes and courses throughout the year.

Lancashire has masses of untapped creative potential. Big Mill is about giving creatives a platform to shine on a much wider footprint.

Big Mill has been coming together for a number of years now as sadly Preston is lacking in opportunities for Artists and designers who find they have to travel to neighbouring towns and cities and further afield for opportunities to show and sell their work.

Big Mill is also planning to hold a huge yearly creative event at an outside venue involving art, craft, food, drink and live entertainment and would be a well promoted event also involving schools and local businesses from Preston but  also bringing many visitors into Preston aswell”.
