Built in 1902, the Town Hall Arts and Cultural Centre has recently been transformed into a community centre for arts, culture and creativity. It is also home to the historic Astor Theatre, the Town Hall Arts and Cultural Centre Gallery, and meeting rooms. The Astor Theatre is proud to be the oldest performing arts venue in the province. In 2002, the Astor Theatre celebrated 100 years of entertainment on the South Shore of Nova Scotia.  The Town Hall Arts and Cultural Centre Gallery is available to showcase local artists’ work as well as work from artists across Nova Scotia. The Gorham Room is a large meeting space, perfect for a special event, reception, meeting or workshop.
