When Arkwright Met Strutt

A brand-new projection-mapped video experience will soon be offered as part of our guided tours of the mill.

The video brings to life the characters of Sir Richard Arkwright, Jedediah Strutt and a whole host of other characters from the mills’ long and impressive history. The video utilises recorded performances from actors as well as sound effects, music and animation to help demonstrate some challenging ethical issues and the global impact of the cotton trade.

The video is projected onto a screen within the site of the first mill, providing a unique immersive experience.
