About us

This is the website managed by volunteers from The New Brighton Heritage & Information Centre. Today we are a volunteer-based Community Group located within St James's Church New Brighton. We have recently obtained charitable status (no.1195346). 
The Centre was founded by Rusty Keane and opened in July 2011 at 90 Victoria Road. In 2014, we moved up the road to our present home in St James's Church. The Church is a Grade II listed building. Its appointed architect was Sir George Gilbert Scott and the foundation stone was laid in 1854.
Although the Heritage Centre is a separate organisation to the Church, the synergy between our work and that of the church history is clear to see.
Our entrance is via the Albion Street door, which is accessible for our disabled visitors. Admission is free but donations are always welcome. These can be the offer of time, display material or monetary.

We also have a summer outreach project - The Visitor Information Point - which is situated in Marine Park, opposite Marine Point. It is located in the pavilion next to the tennis courts and is open at weekends in the summer months.
