ABOUT THE MODEL THEATRE
The Model is one of Ireland’s most important contemporary arts centres with an extensive and vibrant programme of visual and performing arts.
Built in 1862 as a Model School, the present building has been extended twice. The first extension was in 2000 when it was completely refurbished and extended by McCullough Mulvin Architects. The building was redeveloped again by architects Sheridan Woods in 2010, whose extension to The Model has increased the building by a third in size to create a world-class visitor centre. The building boasts a restaurant and coffee dock, a bookshop, a wonderful gallery circuit, a purpose built performance space, and a suite of impressive artist studios on the top floor with enviable views of Sligo town and County.
The Model’s international film programme is presented in partnership with The Sligo Film Society.
