Welcome to
banana block

Banana Block is a new living museum and events space set within a historic linen mill and inspired by the curious connections between Belfast and bananas. Peel the banana a little further and you’ll find a space for original ideas, creative learning and new connections. A space for celebrating eccentric histories and creating incredible futures.

Meet the Bunch


Banana Block is all about collaboration. We are working hand-in-hand with our tenants, with the local community and with partners locally, regionally and internationally.

From the regeneration of the local community, to promoting sustainable ways of living, to new ways of doing business; Banana Block is an open platform for new conversations and new ideas.
