We are live!!

After a very long wait we are pleased to inform all our patient Soukers that the new website is now live!!

A very big thanks to the talented Jennie Wallace who helped us get back on track and sat on top of me while I finished much-needed copy for our fabulous, interactive site.

Ditching our previous super polished but rather ineffective format the new site is straightforward, easy to navigate, informative and most importantly easy for the Souk team to update; making sure you have the latest information on all our events and developments.

You are also able to leave comments, book online, share our stories and tell us yours. The site is lovely and flexible so we can add more pages and links as we go along – we welcome all your ideas & suggestions.

If you would like you or your green business to feature in our weekly blog do get in touch with me Aly via email.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday, as for me I think I deserve a cup of tea

Studio Souk Launching Autumn 2013

The Studio Souk is a workshop/retail space and the coming together of creative entrepreneurs who want to work in community in the heart of Belfast. Being inspired by one another, learning, growing and developing professionally together whilst benefitting from the long-established Souk brand.  The Souk has become synonymous with local talent, forward thinking, sustainable lifestyles and alternative consumerism and proves that thinking outside the box and keeping it local does not compromise quality or professionalism.

The Studio Souk is based in the heart of Belfast’s City Centre in a previously disused shop unit contained within the Spires Complex. Our design team are currently transforming it into a space which will be home to up to 20 creative start-ups such as Urban Fox and Unify NI.

Of course we’ll be hosting a fabulous opening party to show off the new space and let our creative entrepreneurs show off their wares – watch this space for details.  In the meantime take a look at our Facebook photo gallery of the Studio Souk transformation!
