Devizes Outdoor Celebratory Arts has invited residents to a party in the town hall to find out how they can take part in the community events organised in the town.

DOCA is holding the party to encourage more companies to sponsor the carnival, street festival and Christmas lantern parade, which it organises each year.

It is also looking for more volunteers to help run the events or even just come along and give support.

Jo Beal, who has taken over as DOCA’s artistic director from Dave Buxton, said: “Come to the DOCA party and be part of something amazing in Devizes.”

The party takes place in the town hall on Tuesday, April 8, from 6.30pm, when there will be live entertainment and a bar.

Anyone who wants to attend should contact Ms Beal on 07880 239598 or email
