Apologies we haven't updated this news page in a week or two - mainly due to the sheer volume of work that been going on at CWB, so we are going to quickly update in this post and then get back to posting bi-weekly, honest !

On the production front, it was an emotional closing to Limerick City of Culture on December 27th. It had been an an amazing year for Limerick and for CWB as a company with the transformation of the Culture Factory from empty warehouse to world class performance space hosting Fuerza Bruta and No Fit State amongst others a real high point. The Culture Factory's next incarnation looks set to be as a film studio and having shot the Rubberbandits Channel 4 pilot there, we know it will be amazing for that too ! We are currently working on a number of the Legacy Projects in Limerick for the year ahead and it's been amazing the impact the City of Culture project has had on the city.
