Explore the 50 year old Wirral Council Building that is being changed into a hub for Creative Entrepreneurs




Following their huge success of transforming spaces with their buildings in the North Docks and the Baltic Triangle, MAKE CIC are transforming a historic council building into a place for arts, culture and creativity 50 years after it opened in Birkenhead.

Over the years, Wirral has been crying out for a place where makers and creatives can come together and this is just the start. This year Wirral has been celebrating as the ‘Borough of Culture’ with events such as Future Yard, River of Light, Art Outdoors and Wirral Food & Drink Festival put on by the team at Wirral Council and Imagine Wirral. 

MAKE Hamilton will offer a huge opportunity for growth across Birkenhead. “We’re really excited to have the opportunity to extend the social impact of Make CIC. As a social enterprise, it’s our mission to remove barriers for people to be involved in culture, creativity and the arts. 

“There has been a resurgence in people making things and an ever-increasing opportunity for people to set up on their own. We’ve discovered an important ingredient for their success is to be with other people, in a hive of activity – this is what we’ll create in Hamilton Square.” – Liam Kelly, CEO, MAKE CIC

MAKE Hamilton will not only be home to a whole host of creative talent but will also feature a Cafe, meeting spaces and after a hugely successful crowdfunding campaign, a revival of the millenium garden to evolve into a community garden, urban farm & breathing space. With a huge range of eventsworkshops and courses already happening across MAKE Liverpool, Wirral is going to be the new place for creatives and the hub is set to create £1.6m of social impact for the borough over the next five years. 

Georgia Flynn, Head of Media at hi-impact says “There has been a huge influx of opportunities for creatives across the Wirral over the past two years, but for me this is by far this is the most exciting. As a creative from New Brighton who has always had to head over to Liverpool to get involved in the creative community, MAKE Hamilton is an absolute game changer and I can’t wait to see it flourish”.
