About Red Brick Building

The Red Brick Building Centre is an exciting project on the edge of Glastonbury, which has created managed and affordable work space for micro & social enterprises, venues for education, arts, events and community support for Glastonbury, Street and surrounding villages.

We want the Red Brick Building to become a pioneering centre for arts, design, manufacture and culture here in Somerset, providing rewarding, productive and skilled work for generations to come, thus reversing the process of ‘rural exodus’ which has seen our young people leave the area in search of employment.
