On Thursday 24 April at Bridport Town Hall, art historian Gwen Yarker will give an illustrated talk on Henry Joseph Moule, a Dorset born watercolour artist and friend of Thomas Hardy. Talk starts at 7.00pm - £3 donation encouraged.
The first curator of Dorset County Museum, Moule’s lasting legacy is an astonishing collection of several thousand watercolours he painted of the Dorset countryside. A unique record, providing a vivid insight into Victorian Dorset and strongly evoking the Wessex of Thomas Hardy’s books.

Bridport Town Council, working with community groups, local businesses and organisations, has assembled the information on this website, which we trust will provide a useful reference for both residents and visitors alike.
Weekly Wednesday and Saturday Markets take place in Bridport's three main streets throughout the year, from 8am until mid afternoon.
Bridport's large street market has a good selection of stalls selling foodstuffs, clothing and hardware, flowers and plants, pictures and paintings, books and IT goods ...and much more. Many of the traders are long established and use the distinctive Bridport Market bags when selling their goods.
The Saturday market is particularly popular with traders, a special attraction is the large number of antique and Bric-a-Brac stalls located in lower South Street. Anyone wishing to trade in the Street market should contact Bridport Town Council for an information application pack which is also available here. See also www.bridportmarket.com
