The British Textile Biennial spotlights the nation’s textiles world against the backdrop of the cotton industry in Pennine Lancashire, particularly the environmental and human costs of fast fashion and possible alternatives.
County Coun. Peter Buckley, cabinet member for Community and Cultural Services, said: "Queen Street Mill and Helmshore Mills are important local heritage assets and provide a glimpse into our industrial past.
"Our textile mills helped shape Lancashire as we see it today and I would encourage all residents and visitors to take advantage of this offer and come and see them for yourself."
