Art in Poundbury was founded in 2019 to celebrate and promote the enjoyment of Art in all its forms through exhibitions, here in Poundbury. Our first exhibition was in Poundbury Farmhouse and involved 80 artists from a variety of disciplines.
In 2022 Art in Poundbury held two collaborative exhibitions in the newly refurbished Jubilee Hall. These were a huge success involving over 150 artists, 120 community stewards and several thousand visitors both locally and from further afield.
The principal parts of Jubilee Hall originate from the Hall constructed in Weymouth to mark the Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria in 1887 and dismantled in 1989. Ironwork from the old Hall was sourced by the Duchy of Cornwall to incorporate in a new Jubilee Hall, providing a unique community and commercial space in the heart of Poundbury. The Duchy has been delighted to welcome the first exhibition to the Hall at the time of the Platinum Jubilee 2022.
