SATURDAY, March 30 saw the official opening of the new ‘Yarns Coffee Halt’ at Theatre at The Mill, which will now be open in the theatre foyer on Saturdays and Sundays from 10am - 4pm.
Mayor Victor Robinson and Mayoress Vikki Robinson were among the first people through the doors to enjoy a cuppa and sample some of the tasty treats on offer.
Visitors will be able to warm themselves with a hot drink and a bite to eat, whilst enjoying the stunning setting of Mossley Mill Civic Square.
The Yarns Coffee Halt serves a range of coffees, teas, luxury tray bakes, scones and tasty treats and is a great resting point for those travelling along the Newtownabbey Way - the pedestrian and cycle route which runs from Corr’s Corner to the shores of Belfast Lough at Whiteabbey.
Visitors to Yarns Coffee Halt can also check out the great range of drama, comedy and musicals coming up in the theatre. On Saturdays, visitors can also pop into Museum at The Mill, a unique facility where all ages can explore the history and heritage of Mossley Mill. The museum is open from 11am - 4pm, but closed on Sundays.
Ursula Fay, the council’s Leisure and Culture Development Manager commented: “We are delighted to open Yarns Coffee Halt as the latest attraction at Mossley Mill.
“We know it will be a welcome addition for all our weekend visitors whether they are walking, cycling, browsing or rambling through this iconic Mill site. Yarns Coffee Halt is the perfect complement to any visit to the Mill.”
The theatre box office will now open on Saturdays, 10am - 5pm, but will remain closed on Sundays.
