Corporate Events at The Mill

Corporate Events
just got better

Whatever your business, whatever the event, The Mill is one of the most exciting corporate venue locations to hit West Yorkshire in recent years. We’ve seen how businesses have had to change in recent times, and with staff being more remote getting your team together in a large venue space has become ever the more important.

You need a space where you can relax but also have five star quality food, entertainment and even, the modern facilities to be able to present – should your event require it. 

Home of the former Rutland Mills in Wakefield would not seem the likely location for a corporate event space but, an incredible team of designers, architects and engineers have turned what was a historic landmark of Wakefield into something that few others could ever dream of. As a former business, this uniquely puts the corporate venue location into a new light, showcasing how businesses can change but also hold on to the things that make them unique. We have taken this historic building and turned it into a modern day venue that is both steeped in history and looks to the future of our great region. 

With the beautiful backdrop of West Yorkshire and the Hepworth gardens from our open plan seating areas and terrace, you and your guests can be sure to be welcomed with a traditional Yorkshire smile and embrace. 

With a range of fantastic corporate event hosting packages on offer, we can make your business event something to look forward to.

We Saved A Water Mill To Create New Memories

Organising a corporate event can be stressful, but it need not be with our team of event managers who can put together what promises to be a fantastic event for you and your guests. We do this all under the roof of a former landmark and water mill. 

Known across West Yorkshire, The Mill is the former home of Rutlands Water Mill and located next to the stunning Hepworth Gallery. In a building that was erected in the late 19th century, this historic modern day landmark is that little bit different from your usual stately home. At first glance you may be a little confused by the industrial nature, but take one step inside this multi storey building and your confusion will turn to excitement and unlimited possibilities.

Under the guise of specialist designers, architects and builders this former water mill has been turned into a location that harks to West Yorkshire’s industrial heart. The interior styling is modern with huge accents of industry through exposed brick and floor to ceiling windows letting in light and the beautiful West Yorkshire dales flow into every room.

You and your guests will be transported between postmodern and the new age that very few can offer. Our focus is giving you a venue that satisfies your modern needs. The home of a former engineering merchant is the place we chose to bring this experience to life, we saved a factory and modern West Yorkshire landmark to be the home of new memories and beautiful experiences.


Part of the Tileyard North complex and  access to motorways that take you to the M1 and with Sheffield and Manchester being a stone’s throw away, The Mill has everything you need to throw your corporate party and make it a success.

You not only get what is one of the coolest venue locations to have your event, you get five star food service with our team of executive chefs who can put together a menu that brings the world to West Yorkshire, but you also have the possibility of hiring a space that oozes creativity everywhere you turn. With so much choice, what is stopping you from dropping us a line?

With Manchester over the pennines and Sheffield a mere stones throw away and the Peak District National Park on our doorstep with the beautiful backdrop of West Yorkshire from our open plan seating areas and terrace, you and your guests can be sure to be welcomed with a traditional Yorkshire smile and embrace. 

With a range of fantastic corporate event hosting packages on offer, we can make your business event something to look forward to.

    Everyone (nearly) looks forward to the Christmas Party. It’s a way to let your hair down and have a good time with the people you spend the most amount of time with apart from your loved ones – or it was until we all ended up on Zoom calls. Getting people together is important and in our large facility we can do this even socially distanced if you wished. There is nothing we can’t do to make your Christmas Party safe and fun.
