Help Us Tell The Story Of The Old Market House!

We are developing exciting plans to explore and share the history and heritage of The Old Market House and its place in the lives of the people of Bangor. Supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund we want to hear your memories and stories of this historic building:

  • Perhaps you banked or got your first mortgage here when it was the Northern Bank (1952-2019)?
  • Do you or someone in your family remember when it was the old Town Hall (1933-c1950)?
  • Maybe you have old family pictures of when it was Ward Infant School (1880-c1930)?
  • Or do you have old photographs, drawings or home movies of the building or of Main Street?

We would love you to share anything you might have with us; our aim is to gather everything we can  to be developed into an online gallery and other projects.

If you would like to talk to us about your story in person we will be running some in-person workshop sessions over the coming weeks, email as above to find out more.
