Lagan Legacy is a social enterprise set up with the mission to present the history and industrial heritage of the River Lagan and the people that used it by way of a permanent exhibition.
The ‘Home place’ for the exhibition is housed on a barge, which is permanently moored adjacent to Lanyon Place, which is located to the rear of Belfast’s Waterfront Hall. Lagan Legacy purchased the ‘MV Confiance’, a former cargo barge, in 2006 and sailed it to Belfast.
The Barge, with its vibrant exhibition, multi-use space and artist-led cafe bar The Galley, is set to become Belfast’s most popular visitor attraction.
The multi-use space at 90sqm can be used for temporary or visiting exhibitions, a temporary classroom for visiting schools as well as a flexible theatre / conference / cinema and music facility. The multi-use space capacity is 100 standing, 80 theatre style and 60 cabaret style.
To enquire about hiring the Barge please contact Susan McStay at firstname.lastname@example.org.
