Prior to its redevelopment into today’s dynamic and creative hub, the Old Biscuit Mill functioned as an actual biscuit mill for the Pyott’s biscuit company. John Pyott opened the factory in the early 1900s and it remained in operation until 1946.


The Old Biscuit Mill has collaborated with some of the best local and international street artists to create singular murals in and around the venue. Be sure to look for these artworks when visiting, snap a selfie and share with us #OldBiscuitMillArt
