The Cornstore was originally built in shortly after  1839 when the Market house was constructed.
As the name suggests, the building was used primarily for storing corn, wheat and other agricultural supplies. This would have been a hive of activity through out the 1800’s with farmers and traders haggling their prices and shifting supplies. Eventually the building fell into disuse and in serious need of repair due to neglect. Along with other buildings on the Back Road, its has been restored in recent years and has provided space for the youth of Draperstown.
The Cornstore is currently being used as a creative hub by Glasgowbury, a charitable non profit organisation who are behind the award winning Small But Massive Glaslowbury Independent Music Festival. Since Glasgowbury first began in 2000, it has become one of the music industry leaders and innovators. Not only having won multiple festival awards they  have also developed the Rural Key Music Programme, recognised as the innovative ‘Rural Spark’ by Carnegie UK Trust. In 2013 Glasgowbury founder, Paddy Glasgow was awarded UK Promotor of the Year at the Music Festival Awards in London.
Presently the hub is being developed as a creative center and is already busy throughout the week with some 150 people making use of access to music and creativity.
