Creative team moves into new space at Dean Clough

The Creative Core has agreed a deal on a 1,500 sq ft unit within the historic F Mill at Dean Clough in Halifax, relocating a team of twelve from Huddersfield.

Established in 2010 to deliver specialist interpretation design services for museums, heritage sites, libraries and cultural attractions, The Creative Core also operates its own in-house bespoke joinery business which employs a further 30 people at its manufacturing site in Boothtown.

Core’s clients include national organisations like the National Trust, the Science Museum, Amgueddfa Cymru and the RNLI, besides those closer to home, including the Thackray Museum of Medicine in Leeds, Bolton Art Gallery, Library & Museum, and the Peace Museum in Bradford.

Nichola Ward, Creative Director at The Creative Core, said: “Dean Clough was the obvious location for us to relocate to. The venue is well known for its cultural offering, with a mix of successful galleries, a theatre, art houses, media, and design businesses which is a great fit for The Creative Core.

“Representing a legacy of industrial heritage and innovation, Dean Clough provides the perfect setting for us to showcase our services and ethos to visiting clients. The site ticks all boxes in terms of accessibility, amenity and wellbeing for our own team, and the Dean Clough team have been incredibly accommodating, with great flexibility and warmth.”

Jeremy Hall, Chairman and MD at Dean Clough, added: “We are thrilled to welcome The Creative Core to the Dean Clough family.  The business model is truly exciting and blends perfectly with the innovative design orientated businesses we have here.

“For more than 40 years, we have invested in the values of placemaking, creating an attractive destination for business enterprise alongside a vibrant and diverse mix of amenity and cultural experiences. This, alongside the indisputable carbon benefits that the reuse of historic buildings brings for sustainable practice, is fundamental to attracting business occupiers.”

Dean Clough, which recently won the much coveted ‘Development of the Year’ at the 2024 Placemaking Awards, is one of Yorkshire’s largest centres for the business of arts and culture, supporting commercial enterprise, educational practice, public engagement and innovation across a broad spectrum.
