A NEW image has been shared of the inside of Worcester's Artisan Food Hall.

As work carried on outside, foodies have been given a look behind the shuttered frontage of the former Debenhams store.

It is currently in the process of being transformed into a destination venue with a farmer's market-type stalls, concession stands and live events planned.

The picture of the ground floor was shared on the @artisanfoodhall Instagram account, which primarily features many images from the branch in Hull.

The image shows a bar that has been coined as the "LiteBar" or "Zinc Bar".

The caption of the picture teased "it’s close folks", with the opening date still a mystery.   

A Worcester News journalist visited the city centre earlier this week, and found barriers in place outside of the Artisan Food Hall, and could see works still continuing inside.

Artisan Food Hall Worcester revealed in February it hopes to open the ground floor and basement by April or May, with the entire site to open in June.

However, there is still no sign of an opening date and the company has not responded to contact from Worcester News after multiple attempts.

The former Debenhams store permanently closed its doors in January 2021, and the site has been in development ever since.

It was revealed that the site will include live music, a farmers' market and vintage clothing stalls.

The ground floor, which has an entrance from Crowngate, will be a farmers' market selling local produce while the entrance from the High Street will be more of a lounge.

The first floor will have a canteen featuring eight to ten local food and beverage businesses which will be open from Thursday to Sunday.

The basement section, previously men's clothing, will be a retail space for small businesses that sell products such as vintage clothing, retro furniture and zero waste products.

There could even potentially be a skyline bar and secret speakeasy on the top floor with views across Worcester's rooftops.

Artisan Food Hall has another 60,000 sq.ft facility located in Hull, which has a very similar concept to what the Worcester branch is set to be.
