Bringing Down The Curtain at Weymouth Pavilion

Interesting to hear how Weymouth Pavilion is back on the Council’s agenda. With them again proposing to close it down, this time to make way for a car park. In 2007 digital:works did a project with Westfield Technology College (as it was then called) and St Andrews Primary School about Weymouth Pavilion, as the council were looking for developers to take on this area and redevelop it. We trained the children in filmmaking techniques and interview skills. Together we made a film, which we have dug out of our archives.
