PGH Activity: The Mills Tour on 23 October (Mon)
**Final deadline of registration: extended to 18 Oct (Wed)**
The Mills is a landmark revitalization project from Nan Fung Group completed in 2018. A destination consisting of a business incubator, experiential retail, and a non-profit cultural institution may be relatively unfamiliar to Hong Kong people; yet you will discover from The Mills’ vision and history that it is a purely Hong Kong story.
The Mills witnessed the manufacturing heyday in the 1960s, and now carries on that legacy with a future of applied creativity and innovation. Visitors can explore the continuity of an authentic Hong Kong story, where themes of textile and industry are woven into experiences of innovation, culture, and learning.
During this guided tour, you will learn about the reinvention of former Nan Fung cotton-spinning factories into The Mills; the transformation of Tsuen Wan’s textile past into a Techstyle future. The guided tour covers The Mills’ historic attractions, which are colourful spots for stylish photography, and CHAT’s “Welcome to the Spinning Factory!” exhibition where you can experience the manual cotton-spinning process using traditional spinning instruments or even has a chance to design and create your own cotton label!
Let’s walk into this historical and cultural site together!
