Concerts & Events
Constructed in 1888, St. Andrews Church was the cultural, spiritual, and social center of Wilmington, NC's, bustling Brooklyn neighborhood for nearly a century. The adjacent, two-story, St. Andrews school building, known now as The Annex, was completed in 1910 in memory of the founding charter members of the original Second Presbyterian Church (circa 1858). Today, both buildings have been elegantly restored and refurbished as the Brooklyn Arts Center at St. Andrews and, along with the charming church manse and the largest private courtyard in the city, comprise the campus that is Historic Downtown Wilmington's most stunning event venue, the ideal location for any occasion--grand or intimate.
The Church, with its soaring, 60-foot cathedral ceilings, original brick and plaster walls, stained glass windows displayed as extraordinary, 128-year-old artwork, exceptional balcony overlooking the expansive sanctuary floor, and state-of-the-art theatrical lighting is a spectacular setting for weddings, concerts, charitable galas, banquets, films, fundraisers, art shows, vintage flea markets, and more. The Annex has 15-foot, beaded tongue and groove, North Carolina heart pine ceilings, original brick and plaster walls and wood floors, oak roll-up walls, and stained glass windows. The first floor includes a beautiful bridal suite and perhaps the coolest cocktail lounge in the Southeast. The second floor, the original auditorium, is the perfect romantic setting for smaller, more intimate events.
Standing majestically at the corner of Campbell and North 4th streets, the Brooklyn Arts Center is two minutes from the Cape Fear Riverwalk and Historic Downtown Wilmington and 10 minutes from Wrightsville Beach, NC. We have a private, 35-car parking lot and there is additional, abundant free parking in our neighborhood on North 4th Street, all within one walking block of the venue.
Whether you live locally or are considering Wilmington, NC, and the Cape Fear Coast as a destination for your event, the Brooklyn Arts Center offers you the most magnificent facility in the region.
