Family Fun Day, May 22nd

A great day out lies in store for local families as the Friends of the Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings open the gates of the historic site for a Family Fun Day on Sunday 22nd May from 12 – 6pm.

A great feature will be The Exotic Zoo with a large enclosure with meerkats, reptiles, creepy crawlies and other animals for everyone to meet.

Learn circus skills from Jester Jack and listen to magical stories for all ages from Fran O’Boyle.

Ramped will be bringing their Skateboard/Scooter ramps with advice and training thrown in.

There will be a number of exciting Arts Workshops, live music, and a drumming workshop with Olugbala Kokumo .


Everyone will have the opportunity of looking round our new Visitor Centre, talking to our expert volunteers and walking round the site.  Guided tours will be available at times during the day.

Entrance is free to all, as is access to Wi-Fi on-site.

The Friends will also be offering free food and a drink to all those attending who are under 16 - older folks will have to pay, but prices will be very reasonable.


The Friends are supported by:
