Community get a Sneak Peek of Ulster Bar Corner

Antrim community groups, schools, youth clubs and churches were treated to a sneak peek of Ulster Bar Corner last week ahead of its official opening later this month.

The site on High Street has lay derelict for many years, until Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council) took temporary ownership and transformed it into a beautifully landscaped recreational space.  This regeneration project, co-funded by the Department for Communities (DfC), will provide year- round enjoyment for local residents, businesses and visitors to the town.

Whilst the Council have plans to animate the space, including pop-up markets, pop-up cinemas and seasonal activity, the aim of the sneak- peek was to showcase Ulster Bar Corner to the wider community, and hear how they could use the space to enhance their own services and provision.

Groups wishing to use the space as an extension of their day-to-day activity through group outings, reading groups, rhythm and rhyme etc. are not required to book.

Any group looking to host a larger event will be required to complete a booking form with the Council by emailing Culture@antrimandnewtownabbey.gov.uk
