York Guildhall

We’re part-funding a £9.6 million project to renovate York Guildhall into a new riverside digital media arts centre. Designed to attract up to 250 creative start-ups over the next five years, the new hub will re-energise the Grade 1-listed building while also supporting the creation of hundreds of new jobs in the city centre. It will offer up to 1,350 square metres of flexible office space built specially for the creative and digital media sector, extensive exhibition and conference facilities and a new retail arena. Total project cost is £20.2 million, £2.3 of which is Local Growth Fun. The project is due to complete in 2020.
