Museum of Making visit with Italian Mill lunch option

23rd October 2021 - 31st December 2021 From £5 per person

Derby Silk Mill is widely regarded as the site of the World's first modern factory, built in the valley which changed the World.  Industry brough prosperity to some and poverty and wage slavery to others.  Yet it shaped Derby as a City of making and creativity.  The Museum of Making has been designed and made by the people and industries of Derby with exhibits, model railway, activities and events, there is something here for everyone. 

After your arrival, you’ll be shown through to the Italian Mill where you can help yourselves to juices, tea and a filter coffee.

You will be seated to enjoy your drink and then called up one table at a time to help yourselves to your lunch offering.

The menus are dependent on the time of year that you visit, as the River Kitchen only stocks seasonal produce, because of this, the below menus are samples of what can be available depending on the package you order.

The menu package must be ordered by the whole group. If we haven’t already catered for an allergen on the menu, we do cater for any other special requirements upon request.
