Plans for new creative arts nest for children and young people move step closer after architects announced.

Plans for our new £3.2m centre in Bangor that will “give children young people equal access to the creative arts,” have taken an important step forward with the appointment of architects Manalo & White.
The old grade-II listed St Mary’s Church will be transformed into a new creative centre as part of the project.
We’re aiming to bring a new lease of life to this important local heritage building and bring it back into use as a home for the company and a community asset which will contribute to the regeneration and cultural offer of the region.
The design and development stage has secured financial support from the Arts Council of Wales, Welsh Government’s Targeted Regeneration Investment Programme and the Architectural Heritage Fund.
