Stage is £25,000 Diamond Jubilee project
3:01pm Tuesday 12th March 2013 in News
WINCHESTER civic chiefs are to commission a new £25,000 stage as its Diamond Jubilee legacy project.
The city council cabinet approved plans to build a mobile ‘jubilee event space’ for the Winchester district.
It would be a tailor-made stage designed for a variety of users such as bands, theatre groups, exhibitions and workshops.
The council will now commission designs for the project with a shortlist of three to be drawn up by late spring. The final designs would then be put on public exhibition as part of a community consultation.
Winchester Cathedral has offered to store the stage when not in use.
