Dig In - Community Cafe Salisbury


Dig In is a monthly wellbeing café hosted by Wessex Archaeology at Salisbury Arts Centre.

Each month there will be a short 15-minute talk from one of the experts from Wessex Archaeology. This will be followed by an opportunity to ask questions. Then it’s time for a chat over tea, coffee and cake, which you can purchase from the Arts Centre café.

Dig In is open to everyone and is an opportunity to meet new people and to socialise. You do not have to have a special interest in heritage to attend.

Dig In will run from 10:30am – 12pm on:
