Revealing Riddel’s Warehouse at EHOD.

15th September 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Free

**SOLD OUT** Join Ulster Architectural Heritage and Hearth at the impressive Riddel’s Warehouse on Ann Street.

For nearly 100 years Riddel’s warehouse stored everything the Musgrave Foundry could produce, from nails to girders! As the building has remained empty for 50 years, acting as a buffer zone to the nearly police station, remnants of this industry can still be seen throughout. These include the weigh bridge, crane mechanism and pigeon holes.

Hearth acquired the property in 2014 and and are investigating options for restoration and sustainable re-use, including creating gallery and office space for the Royal Ulster Academy and other arts organisations. This is a unique opportunity to visit the building before these important works commence.

Come and meet with representatives of Hearth and their partner organisation, the Ulster Architectural Heritage to learn more about this fascinating building and others in Belfast City Centre. Until it is put back into use, Riddel’s like over 500 structures in Northern Ireland is classified as a ‘building at risk’. UAHS will be there to tell you about Heritage at Risk in Northern Ireland.

Tours of Riddel’s Warehouse will be available for over 16’s every 30 minutes 10:30am-1pm and from 1:30pm-3:30pm. These will be led by Representatives from Hearth and UAHS.

*Over 16 Year Olds ONLY. Booking Essential.*
