Heritage day at The Playhouse Saturday 12th September 2015 Tour times: 10am, 11am, 12noon, 2pm and 3pm.

As part of European Heritage day, The Playhouse will open its famous red doors for a fun packed day of tours.
The award winning Playhouse, as featured on BBC Restoration, is housed in two 'B1' listed buildings, which were former Sister of Mercy Primary Schools dating back to 1887 and 1911.
Unusual features include a unique wooden cobbled entrance (the only other wooden cobbles in Ireland are at Trinity College), and bizarre hinge/sash windows.
Refurbished at a cost of £4.6 million, winner of the UK BURA Award 2009, and finalist of BBC Restoration 2004, The Playhouse is well worth a visit.


Also featuring a BBC Archive Screening, 'Shirt Factory Horn' and 'A Change of View', exploring factory stories and industrial heritage at 11am in the theatre. Social change, shirt-making and urban renewal. A double-bill of archive films about work and community life- full of character and fun. Introduction by Editor of BBC Radio Foyle, Larry Deeney.
