Culture in Bournemouth (1)

Bournemouth Councillors are considering a new planning application for the Winter gardens site in the town.  This was an important Concert Hall which not only saw the birth of the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra but also visits by some  great bands and choirs Apparently the plans for the site include "cultural" spaces. I expect that these will include replacements for the Concert hall itself, the Pier Theatre and a cultural hub to replace the lost BCCA. Hurrah for Bournemouth Borough Council in whose plans culture is a leading part of the regeneration process. 
Here is a report in the Echo
