The Drill Hall Chepstow is a community and arts venue which, since it was leased by Chepstow Town Council in 2008, and handed to a volunteer management committee, has rapidly become a major focus in Chepstow's artistic and community life. 

 

With a programme that includes cinema, professional live theatre, concerts, local amateur dramatic performances, poetry readings by nationally known poets, book talks by famous authors, day schools on subjects of historical and environmental interest, art and craft and craft exhibitions, produce shows, dances and the regular monthly meetings of The Chepstow Society and Chepstow U3A.

With so many exciting and varied events the hundreds of regular visitors find our fortnightly e-mail programmes and reminders to be vital in planning their diaries.  To sign up to this free service so that you have  advanced knowledge about all of the great events being staged at the Drill Hall just send a blank email to mailto:drillhallevents@aol.com
