Join us to celebrate Heritage Open Day 2020. This year's festival will be a little different due to Covid-19. We have teamed up with Silk Road explorer John Pilkington to create a virtual talk of his travels along this famous road, recorded here at Whitchurch Silk Mill.
Sit back and relax in the comfort of your own home, while John whisks you across the world. Sharing stories of the people he met, and the countries he visited, while on a mission to find exactly where in China the silk we use here at the Mill comes from. A stunning journey with some beautiful pictures, this talk highlights the secrets of the silk road for this year’s Heritage Open day theme Hidden Nature.
John’s video will be available on our website https://whitchurchsilkmill.org.uk/beamed-off/#silkproductionvideos and Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/WhitchurchSilkMill on Friday 11th September-Sunday 20th September. The event is free.
