Young people take over Bangor Main Street

Blog LogoBangor Main Street was the scene of a high street heist this morning as young people took over a unused unit to display their skills and talents.
The concept store in Bangor was part of somewhereto_re:store campaign which is taking place over the summer months across the UK.
Developed with the support of the Big Lottery Fund, the campaign is a chance for young people to engage with their local communities, by showcasing their talents, kick starting their business ideas and reinvigorating the high street in the process.
Today’s taster event saw acoustic music sessions, art exhibitions and creative workshops coming together to display just some of the talents which will be taking up the space over the next six weeks.
Shop manager, Conor Busutti, an illustration graduate from Kircubbin said, “It is brilliant to be involved in creating opportunities for other young people to pursue their creative passions, be it art exhibitions, gigs, dance offs, business workshops or even mini BMX sessions.
Following the launch event, the Bangor somewhereto_shop will have a programme of events, with each week offering a mini-festival of young creativity and energy, with musical performances, film screening and talks on mentoring and enterprise.
Call into the Re:store at 68-73 Main Street Bangor to find out more about what is going on or for further information please go to
