Welcome to our new premises at 11 Main Street, a new open space for the community of Maghera & surrounding districts.

Maghera Heritage & Cultural Centre is a Heritage building within Maghera it is also a space that is community based and embraces all aspects and sides of our growing multicultural community. 

The Heritage Centre is designed to be user friendly, local visitors and tourists will have access to artefacts and information from past generations. We also accept old pieces from the past for display in the centre, these items can either be donated or given on loan for return when requested.

Our extensive premises include a research library, genealogy station, exhibition gallery and a large function suite which includes a performing area for amateur dramatics, corporate functions, music, dancing and poetry evenings as well as artists exhibitions.

With a recent installation of a lift our premises our premises are now accessible to everyone.
