  • Art displays
  • Photographic displays
  • Music
  • Refreshments
  • Information about the Old Town Hall project to renovate and restore the building for it to be used as a Heritage Centre on one floor and an Arts Centre on the other. Also, information about the Chapelhay Community Partnership.

There will be a lot more besides, so do come along and see what it's all about.

This event is hosted by Guardians of the Old Town Hall (GOTH) - a group of six people who joined together to form a Community Interest Company and took on the lease from Weymouth and Portland Borough Council for a term of 30 years at a peppercorn rent.
