SHAFTESBURY Arts Centre will be reopening its doors to the public at the end of the month with a special film screening.

On September 26 and 27 both film fanatics and those who have missed the arts centre’s auditorium can enjoy the showings of Military Wives.

The directors and volunteers wish to assure the public that strict government guidelines relating to coronavirus will be followed, including an organised seating plan that will allow for social distancing.

During the Covid-19 pandemic the centre has been keeping Shaftesbury residents entertained through various events, including a virtual talent contest and workshops outside.

The box office will not be open, so those wishing to attend a Military Wives showing must order a ticket online.
