The Courthouse Shared Space Creative Hub
Restoration and extension of the Grade B1 listed Old Courthouse in Bushmills to transform the derelict courthouse into a unique, state of the art shared space creative hub.
The new arts and cultural hub will feature a flexible area, studio, workshops, offices, visitor facilities, a café, shop, and a new home for the local arts and crafts social enterprise, The Designerie.
Planning approval, and additional funding, was granted in August 2022. Completion is expected in December 2023.
The project is funded under the European Union’s PEACE IV Programme (which is managed by the Special EU Programmes Body), with match-funding provided by the NI Department for Communities and the Department of Rural and Community Development, Ireland.
