Harvest Time at Brixton Windmill
Sunday 25 September 1pm to 5pm
Our free family festival celebrates the annual wheat harvest and the histories and crafts of milling and artisan bread making with craft workshops, live music, food, and beer from Brixton Brewery. Workshops for children include baking and traditional corn dolly making. Our shop and cafe will be open together with bookable guided tours of the windmill.
