Will Council buy the Regent? It's long been lobbied for and many in the community think they should. An extraordinary meeting today will see Councillors discuss the possibility.
There will be a public forum at 2pm and the meeting will commence at the conclusion of the public forum.
The purpose of the meeting is to - in Council's own words - 'Investigate the purchase of the Regent Theatre building.'
To watch the meeting live - minus the public forum speakers - head to this page on Council's website where it will be live-streamed.
The Mudgee Guardian will publish the results at our website and we will also Tweet from the @mudgeeguardian Twitter account live from the meeting.
