THE MILL OPENS ITS DOORS

Islington Mill, home of a zillion Salford creatives, is throwing open its doors to the public during July with a series of events, happenings and exhibitions. Every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday til the end of the month the Mill will be open from noon until evening, complete with a bar and weird stuff like the strange folk-driven Jackie-O Motherfucker on the 9th and a Moon Landing Party on the 19th. For the whole month expect something completely different and not to be missed.
