I’d never heard of Accidental Theatre before, but next week they’re opening what looks like an interesting production in a fascinating venue in Anne Street in Belfast, Riddel’s Warehouse. It’s that rather anonymous industrial building beside Musgrave Police Station.
It’s a too-rare example of Belfast waking up to its own built environmental history before it gets smashed to pulp for sake of posterity.
As this great youtube video shows, most of our buildings are full of great stories of where we came from in the not too distant past…

For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.
Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger.
While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.
