What's Happening

Check out what on

Here at the Mechanics there is always lots happening, things to visit, classes to attend and of course Mi’Café is open daily with fish and chips being served every Friday between 11:00 am and 1:30 pm.

A few words from the Chairman

Terry Pearson

Welcome to the website for Eccleshill Mechanics Institute, your community hub for Eccleshill.

The Mechanics has had the most varied history over the last 150 years, I am particularly delighted that perhaps the biggest achievement sine the Local Authority ‘conned’ the village by taking control of the building in or around 1905 that the building now belongs back with the community under a 99 year lease until 2120.

I hope you find everything you are looking for and look forward to welcoming you into your building for your next visit whether for the monthly Farmers Crafty market our in-house Bistro.

A beautiful building and community hub with a welcoming aura, something you feel when you walk through the doors…..

If you have not visited, you must. If you have, then you know!

We have lots of different visitors to the Mechanics for many different reasons and the one shared comment we get is that feeling of community, welcome, and pleasant warm welcoming surroundings.

If you have never been, there are many reasons to visit the Mechanics whether for one of the many weekly classes in the Main Hall, our ‘Bistro MI’ held last Saturday of each month, or just call for a cuppa and or a hot lunch from our daily Mi’café.

Farmers Crafty Market

Bistro MI
