The BIS – the former General Post Office building in Whitby Street, Hartlepool has been refurbished and turned into a centre for business in the creative industry. The stunning redevelopment of this Grade 2 listed Building sits in the Innovation and Skills Quarter off Church Street and is now home to a number of inspiring and skillful creative businesses. The building offers individual workspace for both start-up and established businesses. Centered around a common communal atrium there is opportunity for tenants to come together, network and even develop collaborations.

The building is now open and the businesses are looking forward to welcoming the members of the community to visit the space, meet the owners and find out about the creative services, courses and workshops on offer. Under the umbrella name of Whitby Street Studios @ The BIS the businesses are hosting an open event evening on the 25th October between 4pm – 7pm.
