Open Heritage Belfast

Open Heritage Belfast (OHB) is an initiative we deliver in partnership with Ulster Architectural Heritage. Its aim is to raise awareness of the city’s heritage, and we do this by organising a programme of heritage-themed activities to coincide with European Heritage Open Days (EHOD) each year.

Open Heritage Belfast 2018

The 2018 programme celebrated red brick, a key component of Belfast’s built heritage, often overlooked and taken for granted. 

The legacy of the city’s brickworks lives on in some of our most historic buildings. The buildings below opened to the public as part of OHB from 8-9 September 2018.

  • Riddel’s Warehouse, 87-91 Ann Street
  • East Belfast Network Centre, 55 Templemore Avenue
  • Carnegie Oldpark Library, 46 Oldpark Road
  • Conway Mill, 5-7 Conway Street
  • First Presbyterian Church, 41 Rosemary Street
  • Queen’s University Belfast, University Road

Riddel’s Warehouse played host to the ‘heritage hub’ for the weekend, where an exhibition on Belfast’s red brick heritage was displayed in its spectacular atrium.

About European Heritage Open Days

Each year, hundreds of properties across Northern Ireland open their doors and many organisations put on events as part of EHOD. It gives behind-the-scenes access to buildings not normally open to the public, and entry to all the events is free.
