Dame Ellen to perform opening

HEAGE Windmill has lined up a very special guest to officially open the attraction for the 2011 season later this year.

The windmill will open its doors to the public on the first weekend in April and will then open every weekend, and bank holidays, until the end of October.

Traditionally, the venue has always opened at Easter but since this feast falls very late, the formal opening will still be on Easter Saturday, 23rd April, at noon. The windmill team is delighted to have obtained the services of Dame Ellen MacArthur to perform this task.

The windmill is open from 11am-4pm every weekend from April 2 to the weekend of October 29-30, as well as at all bank holidays.
