Braid Arts Centre

The Braid Town Hall in Ballymena, County Antrim, was given a major overhaul in 2008 when the original building was refurbished and augmented with a brand new museum and arts centre.

The original Grade II listed building has been extended to incorporate a new museum, an auditorium which seats over 400 people, a 77 seat studio theatre, a dance studio, arts workshops and gallery spaces and a public art collection.
