The Red Brick Building Centre Ltd is an innovative community-owned social enterprise based in the former Morlands Factory, situated between Glastonbury and Street in Somerset.
Since 2010, we have raised close to £1 million locally and through grants, and have transformed two of the three derelict buildings into a vibrant community space for all ages. We offer a diverse weekly arts and events programme as well as being home to an award-winning restaurant, a local FM radio station, a popular youth club, weekly exercise and wellbeing classes, and regular support groups.
We have three versatile rooms available to hire by the hour, suitable for a broad range of activities including: conferences, meetings, workshops, classes, public events, private parties and weddings. Find more details abour our venue hire here. In addition, we offer affordable office spaces, hot desk facilities and artisan units. We are proud to be home to a diverse and eclectic group of local small businesses and enterprises. More information about our workspaces is available here.
We keep our prices as affordable as possible to allow all members of the community to benefit from our services. All the money we receive from bookings and workspace rentals goes directly towards paying our staff and the running costs of the building. If there is any profit, this is used to provide additional benefit to the local community.
We are a Community Benefit Society and have over 300 community shareholders from the local and wider community. No one benefits individually.
Red Brick Investors Club
A small number of local organisations and individuals have invested large sums of money in the building. Without this essential support, the building work would not have been possible. Tom Clark is the chair of this Club. He attends board meetings and has an active role in the overall strategic planning of the project. Tom has extensive experience with charitable organisations and theatre work, and has long experience in driving projects of this kind. He has been a friend of the project since the beginning and has provided significant financial support.
