Briery Gap Cultural Centre was set up in November 1999 as a venue of excellence to attract national and international talent to the Lee Valley Region. The theatre, which is based in Macroom, also offers a varied inclusive programme to include all members of the community and encourages the use of the venue by enthusiastic and reliable youth groups, theatre companies and film makers. It encourages expertise in all areas of theatre and cinema by providing workshops and training for Youth Theatre, Choirs and Drama Groups.
