The Mill Arts & Events Centre (The Mill) in Rayleigh reopens to the community with a special Open Day on Sunday, 11th September, as part of our Heritage Open Days celebrations and for bookings from Monday, 12th September.

The Open Day will run from 11am to 3pm and include a host of free fun events, performances, and surprises, with something for everyone.

Cllr Mike Webb, Portfolio Holder for Housing, Assets and Leisure, said:

“We have listened to our residents and reopened The Mill. I hope that everyone will come down to our Open Day, celebrate its return and support and enjoy this valuable community hub to the full.”

More details on the Open Day will be revealed throughout August.

The Council’s Leisure and Cultural Services Team are already taking bookings for events and community groups, with priority given to organisations and local groups who used The Mill before its closure.

The core operating hours of The Mill will initially be Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm.

The Mill is also open for bookings during weekends and evenings.
