St Mary the Virgin Church is the newest of the three Anglican churches in Dorchester, built between 1910-1912 in the 14th century decorated style by the architect Charles Ponting. It is situated in Edward Road on the western side of the town in an area called Victoria Park. It is very near Dorchester West station and the County Hospital.
On entering this beautiful building one feels immersed in a deep sense of spirituality and prayerfulness captured in its very fabric through almost ten decades of worship.
Dorchester Choral Society feels this church is their "home" for the majority of their concerts and enjoys a thriving relationship with all those who make it possible for us to do that.
Charlton Down Village Hall was originally the Old Ballroom for the Herrison Estate. It is a large, light and airy room which has been completely modernized, holding upwards of 300 audience and has excellent acoustics.
