” When you leave a beautiful place, you carry it with you wherever you go.”Alexandra Stoddard
It began in 1865
River Mills Ballroom started its life as part of the Ousegate Mills in 1865. Originally Liversidge’s Agricultural Depository, a trading centre owned by the most powerful family in Selby, the use of the building changed to a textile factory in the late 1920s, then later a Christie’s Ballroom, then a roller-disco and finally a nightclub. After a slight dry-spell in occupancy, the first floor took on a new life as River Mills Ballroom in 2016.
Since the Fisher family took over the custodianship of this historic ballroom they have worked tirelessly to restore the building’s original features and instil new charm with modernisations which have brought the building back to life and usefulness.
Since renovations began, old windows and stairs have been rediscovered, the ballroom floor has been restored, the entrance has received a beautiful new door and windows – and so much more.
With so many more restorations and improvements on the way – the building will go from strength to strength.
