Exciting plans to create £4M arts centre in Sherborne

Proposals to create a new arts venue in Sherborne – which are supported by Sherborne Chamber of Trade and Commerce – will move forward following a meeting of the town council  on March 20.

The full council met to vote on whether it should enter “formal discussions” with the Sherborne Community Arts Centre Trust (SCACT) over the “possible future use, management and maintenance” of Paddock Garden on Newland.

The trust wishes to build an arts centre – known as the Paddock Gallery – on land south of the garden, and wishes to make some alterations to allow public access to the proposed building.

The council’s meeting followed a public meeting held  on March 13 at the Digby Hall on Hound Street, which was attended by around 300 people.
