St Columb’s Hall, one of Derry’s most famed and storied buildings, is to be revitalised with funding totalling £751,727 from The National Lottery Heritage Fund.
The ‘Aurora’ project aims to reawaken the Grade A Listed Hall by undertaking necessary restoration works to make the building safe and accessible, reconnect the community to the cherished venue through a heritage activity programme and ultimately re-open as a full-time events venue once again.
The “Aurora” project will re-establish this community connection to St Columb’s Hall, the first phase is completing urgent repair works to stonework and parapet levels on the Hall’s western elevation. In addition, St Columb’s Hall Trust will work with the community to research the heritage of the hall and its future. The project will create a part time support post as well as giving three apprentices the opportunity to learn valuable heritage maintenance and restoration skills which will be critical in maintaining the Hall in the future.
