Old Shire Hall
Breeze Creatives CIC, have been granted access to Old Shire Hall for a limited time, to host four very special events that aim to showcase some of the best creativity in Durham, Newcastle, Sunderland and the surrounding areas.
Old Shire Hall is a Grade II listed building situated in the heart of Durham City Centre. It was built in 1895 as the County Hall, and was used as such until 1963 when it was bought by the University of Durham as a home for their administration.
Old Shire Hall has particular significance as this is where the first all Labour County Council was assembled in 1909.
