Save the Sunflower!
As many of our Belfast-based supporters will already be aware, the iconic Sunflower pub in the city’s resurgent cathedral quarter is under threat of demolition. Harking back to a dated, and long-discredited approach to urban regeneration, the Belfast planners have decided to level entire city blocks in the quarter, thereby erasing the existing urban fabric, and with it, the Sunflower.
In a few short years, Pedro Donald and his staff have transformed the Sunflower into the best pub in Ulster (2015) and a cultural beacon. They’ve contributed in no small part to the resurgence of the neighbourhood the planners are now targeting for demolition and regeneration.
