The Arches is a truly charming industrial venue. Originally the largest carpet manufacturer in the world, Dean Clough Mills has been lovingly restored by the Hall Family into a unique complex of modern, inspiring Mills. Bursting with creativity, the Mills also house the largest private Art Collection in the whole of Europe, a Theatre and a Hotel.
The Arches was established in 2014 when we saw the opportunity to hold distinctive and memorable events within the Mills. We have been hosting incredibly individual Weddings and exclusive Events ever since. Our beautiful vaulted red brick ceilings, iconic Northern Lights and Yorkshire Stone floors provide the backdrop for some serious styling and artistic touches. The space is inviting and lends itself beautifully to a variety of styles.
"The team at The Arches were amazing!!! We had our wedding here back in June and the team made our day so special and relaxed!! From start to finish they were very communicative and very supportive of our requests! Our day went so smoothly and was just perfect and we can't express how much this was down to them! They gave us enormous amounts of advice and time to organise ourselves which was extremely helpful! They made our day so relaxing and incredibly enjoyable! Special thanks to Abi and Tabby for being there for us from start to finish, you were the best! Such a friendly team to be part of! And thank you so much for the rest of the team on our special day - the catering team, waiters and waitresses, bar staff, door staff and Diane for seeing us off into the night and making everything run smoothly! You were all amazing!! Thank you so so much!!!"
Quite unusually for a venue of our type, we offer a versatile capacity, meaning that despite our 300 person capability, we can also host a minimum of 60 Guests without compromising experience quality. Plus we, remarkably for a quirky venue, offer all-inclusive Wedding Packages as we have our own exceptional Executive Chef & Team, rather than a long list of Caterers, who can create exactly the right food and drink options to suit you and your Guests. Ask us about our Tasting Nights and Chef's Table Options which are included as part of your Package.
"Fantastic location, decorated to specific requirements and the room looked stunning. Couldn't of asked for more helpful and friendly staff and organisation. Food and attention to detail to the event was exceptional. Highly recommend."
Our dedicated Weddings & Events Team can help you realise your vision and walk you through the planning process.
