John Gaunt said ( about John Gaunt ) : "Bringing the Old Woollen back to life has been a true labour of love. The building has been completely derelict for 50 years and had fallen into an advanced state of dilapidation. So far we have spent 150,000 on bringing back a section of the ground floor into use. “We have ambitious plans to redevelop the whole building, once funds have been secured. We have intentionally left the Old Woollen in a state of ‘arrested decay’ which gives the audience a direct connection with the past. “We have been absolutely delighted with the acts we have been able to book so far and the reaction to them. It has been a great success story and maintains the mill’s proud connection with the arts, as both Yorkshire Television’s Emmerdale and Heartbeat were filmed here, and we have a thriving art gallery on site, too, ” said Mr Gaunt. Dick Bonham, a director of Trouble At Mill, said: “We’re delighted to be coming home to Sunny Bank Mills. We started the Trouble At Mill journey with a series of pop-up events at the Mill, which featured a whole range of great shows and acts. The team there have always been incredibly supportive, and we’re thrilled that they’ve decided to work with us to re-purpose and re-energise The Old Woollen. “Working together we know it will have an incredible vibe, with some brilliant acts. People always say to us they can’t believe things like this are happening in a place called Farsley - well, this is only the beginning and we can’t wait to share some of the great events we have in store!"
