Seacourt is raising funds to buy, preserve and revitalise Bangor’s old Ulster bank, but we need your help!
We have big plans for the bank and want it to become a creative hub in the heart of Bangor, Northern Ireland. A community space with amazing opportunities for young people, artists and all our local residents. With your support we will buy the building and secure Seacourt’s long term future as pillar of the local community and play a key part in regenerating the centre of Bangor.
Seacourt are appealing to the people of Bangor and beyond to help raise funds to buy the old Ulster Bank Building and reclaim it for community use. A beautiful Grade B1 listed building at the top of lower Main Street, Bangor, it is the tallest and most prominent building in the newly designated city centre.
We want to help create a thriving city centre where people can explore heritage, music and visual arts. We offer year-round events and activities that provide fun, creative experiences, connection to other people and the opportunity to explore talents.
We need people who care about Bangor to donate or make a pledge to help us secure the funding we need to buy the bank and fund some minor capital works to make it accessible to the public.
We are seeking government support through the Community Ownership Fund and will secure additional funding from trusts and foundations. But we need your help to raise the remaining £20, 000 of the budget as an investment in Bangor.
We believe in Bangor, we believe in its people and we believe that art can help us bring the city centre back to life.
