Seacourt Print Workshop, Old Ulster Bank Building, 75 Main Street, Bangor, County Down, BT20 5AF
The Bangor Bell on display in North Down Museum in Bangor City


Part of the Columbanus Festival 24 - 26 November 2023, find out more about the festival here.

A festival of workshops, walks and talks will commemorate the life and legacy of Columbanus.

The theme of bells is chiming through this year's Columbanus Festival.  Monastic bells played an important role in early medieval times to call the monks to prayer or warn of impending danger.  Located in various venues in Bangor, the programme includes Bell Ringing, Bangor Bell Print Workshops, Monastic Bell Lecture, Bangor Bell Walk, Columbanus Cultural Evening and a Columbanus Church Service.​​​​​​


Acclaimed artist Jessica Hollywood will lead a print workshop to teach participants how to decorate and print their own Bangor Bell postcard using vintage letterpress techniques. Materials supplied.

Celebrate the Columbanus Festival at Seacourt Print Workshop and take part in a unique activity designed specifically to honour the Bangor Bell. During the workshop you will be able to letterpress print your own postcard using our vintage presses and letterpress type. Participants will get to print up to 4 postcards and decorate them with water colour paints and pens. These will be unique, limited edition prints which you will be able to keep or post to a friend.

Seacourt Print Workshop is based in the former Ulster Bank building on main street, Bangor. The building is within a short walk from Bangor train and bus station.

Car parking is available in private and public car parks nearby.
