The Bar Convent


For BRICK’s final EVER workshop, we’ll be at The Bar Convent in York, on 5th December 2017. This exciting workshop will focus on topics which are vital to ensure the proper planning for reusing heritage sites, such as governance, business planning and fundraising. You’ll also have the opportunity to meet other community projects and network with experts in the sector.

The Bar Convent is England’s oldest living convent, founded in 1686 as a school for girls. In 2015, following a multi-million-pound renovation, it became The Bar Convent Living Heritage Centre and the Grade 1 Listed eighteenth-century buildings now house a state-of-the-art Exhibition, an award-winning Cafe and highly-rated Guest House, plus newly refurbished Conference facilities.


  • ‘Milton Rooms, Malton: The Story So Far’ by Judy Cliffe, Chair of The Milton Rooms
  • Niall Phillips, Purcell on new uses for historic buildings
  • David Renwick, Head of HLF Yorkshire and Humber
  • BRICK’s 5 Key Themes – An Overview (Governance, New Uses, Digital Innovation, Business Planning and Fundraising)
