It has been an amazing first three months for PiP cafe and community space with a large number of visitors and a range of groups already using the community space. We are excited about the wonderful events coming up!
Music at the Pavilion - 28th July
Due to the wonderful success of the first free music event at PiP, which welcomed over 140 people, we are pleased to announce the second Music at the Pavilion on Wednesday 28th July from noon. Bring a chair or a blanket, grab a sandwich or lunch from the café and enjoy some musical entertainment for a lunchtime with a difference.
We are looking for more local musicians to perform, so if you would like to share a song to two with us, play keyboards or bring your band then please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org or via https://www.facebook.com/pipscommunityhub
Poundbury Food and Arts Festival -7th August 10am - 4pm
Dorset Food and Drink are hosting The Poundbury Food and Arts Festival on The Great Field, previously held at Queen Mother Square. On a smaller scale, and sadly without a stage this year, it will be championing the best of Dorset and showcasing a great line up of local food, drink, art, and craft. As always PiP will be open to offer you refreshments after a wander around the array of stalls and local produce on offer at the festival.
