Banks Mill Studios

About Banks Mill Studios

Banks Mill Studios is an innovation space for creative and digital industries, located in a landmark building within the heart of Derby City Centre. 

Comprising of 38 clean and dirty studios and a ground floor gallery, Banks Mill offers stepped rents along with vital business support services and a connected community of peers to ensure success at all levels of enterprise growth. We have a diverse range of creative industry disciplines within Banks Mill – from jewellery makers to printmakers, computer games to fine artists. Our residents and members are both University of Derby students and graduates, and creative entrepreneurs not connected with the University. 

Visit our gallery to see our rolling programme of exhibitions featuring our residents and members and come along to events such as the Derbyshire Open Arts festival in May and our Winter Open Studios in November where you can meet our creatives and buy original artwork and handmade products. 

The University also supports non-creative businesses through our facilities at the iD Centre on the RTC Business Park and St Helena campus in Chesterfield
