Gap Filler’s largest installation has been a welcome addition to the city centre this summer and has proved an excellent venue for buskers.

The Pallet Pavilion, opened to the public in December, was a huge volunteer operation co-ordinated by volunteer organisation Gap Filler.

The pavilion, a semi-enclosed performance and community space, was made out of 3000 wooden pallets. More than 250 volunteers contributed to the project and sponsors and donations helped get it up and running.

The pavilion has been home to all sorts of music groups in the last few weeks and even opened a weekend bar this year.

With the annual World Buskers Festival underway, the pavilion has also been hosting Keith Preene's Golden Goose Bingo.

Music performances were continuing and were being well-received by visitors.

The pavilion is well worth a visit as volunteers have organised a wide range of events for all ages, including Teddy Bear Picnics, a weekend bar, and board game evenings.

The group also welcomes anyone and everyone to use the space. To hire the space or suggest an idea, email
