The Old Church Centre is a unique home for Heritage, Arts and Community in the village of Cushendun in the Glens of Antrim, an area of outstanding natural beauty. The Centre runs a busy programme of events, classes, and workshops all year round and is open to the public on most weekends between 12 and 4pm. Regular events include live music, the Cushendun Community Cinema, quarterly craft fairs, and our annual festival The Big Arts Weekend.
The Centre has hosted many leading NI arts organisations including the Ulster Orchestra and Big Telly theatre company and is available for hire for weddings, corporate and community events.
The Old Church Centre is managed by Cushendun Building Preservation Trust, a cross community volunteer group formed to rescue the building and give it a new lease of life at the heart of the village. Work to restore the building was completed in 2019, thanks to the generous support of the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, and Ulster Garden Villages.
