51 Lime Street, the new home of Ouseburn Trust in Ouseburn Valley

Our new home

51 Lime Street is our new event space, visitor centre, shop, co-working facility, and a home base for our staff, volunteers, and archives. This refurbished warehouse on Lime Street will serve a growing number of visitors and open a new cultural hub that can be accessed by local residents, artists, organisations and businesses. 

We aim to open the doors to 51 Lime Street Spring/Summer 2024.

Plans at 51 Lime Street

Our office will occupy a small area of the building, with a designated space for our heritage archives and areas where our volunteers can focus on research or just relax before and after volunteering shifts.

Shop & event space

Flexible seating will enable 51 Lime Street to transform into a space for talks, screenings, pop-ups, mini-markets, public consultations, networking events, and private functions. 

The event space will be used for Ouseburn Trust events but will also be available to the local community, offering creatives, businesses and organisers a new cultural space to utilise in the centre of the Valley. 

With a growing number of visitors to Ouseburn Valley, the 51 Lime Street shop will stock items that celebrate our area, from Victoria Tunnel trinkets to local ceramics. 

Crucially, we’ll offer the space as a shop front to Ouseburn’s artists and makers. All the profits we generate in the shop will go straight back into the Ouseburn Trust, helping us deliver more heritage, environment and community projects.
