A local charity that supports the arts is holding a fundraising night with a difference to mark 40 years since it was set up.

Dorchester Arts are hosting a curry and quiz night to honour their fortieth anniversary on Saturday, March 2 at the Corn Exchange on High East Street.

The ‘mega quiz’ will be an event to support Dorchester Arts, a registered charity founded in 1984, that gives people in the community a chance to get involved in the arts and express their creativity.

Tickets cost £18, or £90 for a table of six and include a plate of homemade curry with rice and accompaniments, a Ruby drink and dessert as well as entry to the quiz.

Book tickets online at www.dorchesterarts.org.uk or call the box office on 01305 266926.
