Ready to embrace a new discovery?

The wait is over and the Alley Theatre and Strabane Visitor Information Centre is back just in time for the Summer months.

Strabane’s hub of culture is partially reopened in line with Covid 19 restrictions with the following services available: Box Office/ Strabane Visitor Information Centre, Studio 1 Craft Collective and our Gallery.

Open Monday to Friday from 10am – 4.30pm, call in and enjoy our two current exhibitions:

‘Loving Life’ by Strabane’s very own Pauline Norry.  A beautiful collection of both watercolour paintings and hand embroidered pieces and features themes of family, history, landscape and nature. 

Our second exhibition is ‘An Introduction to Flann O’Brien, A Man of Mystery ‘. This exhibition celebrates the life and works of local writer Brian O’Nolan (Brian O’Nuállain) who is better known by his pen names of Flann O’Brien and Myles Na Gopaleen.
He was a novelist, playwright and satirist and is considered as one of the major literary figures in twentieth century Irish literature.

Also opening on the 21st June is ‘The Lost Childhood’ exhibition which tells the stories of the children and young people who lost their lives in the Derry City and Strabane District Council area during the conflict.
