Free exhibition space at Rayleigh Windmill

Rochford District Council is offering local artists, as well as local voluntary and community groups, the opportunity to promote their work with free exhibition space at Rayleigh Windmill.

The award-winning and historical landmark hosts a small museum as well exhibition space on the second floor.

The windmill will be open between the beginning of April until September on Wednesdays between 10am-1pm and Saturdays and Sundays between 1-4pm. Each year the windmill welcomes thousands of visitors.

There is no charge for this exhibition space and opportunity. Those displaying an exhibition will be allocated approximately three to four weeks at the windmill and would be expected to be present at the exhibition when the windmill is open.

The deadline for applications and expressing an interest in this opportunity is 10am on Friday January 17, 2020.

Rochford District Council’s Portfolio Holder for the Community, Cllr Mike Webb, said: “This is a wonderful opportunity for artists to showcase their work at the historic Windmill, which is an award-winning visitor attraction.

“By making this free space available to local artists, we hope that this will be a great opportunity to showcase their work to the public and make new connections.”
