Four Storeys, Our Story: Behind the Scenes of the Historic New Standard Works FREE


Discover the New Standard Works' heritage stories on a guided tour of our four storey building. You will see how the Ruskin Mill Land Trust has transformed a derelict jewellery manufactory into a vibrant mixed-use development centred around Argent College, a specialist education provider for young people aged 16-25 run by Ruskin Mill Trust.

This tour takes you behind the scenes and across the building's four floors, including into the 'walk in' safe in the derelict basement and to the unique rooftop micro-farm. You'll be able to learn more about the stories of the former occupants in our heritage exhibitions and art installations.

For families we have a range of trails and activities to help younger visitors explore our exhibitions, and the craft resource box is open for everyone to be creative and make something during their time with us.

Also during this time we will be hosting a new exhibition on Ghost Signs in the Jewellery Quarter by photographer Tracey Thorne. There will be a programme of activities alongside this. WATCH THIS SPACE!
