Enticing home-made delicacies were offered to more than 200 visitors at the Food and Drink Market held at the Exeter Street Hall in Brighton.

The market was organised by The Hall Get Involved to save the venue for the community rather than see it sold off to property developers

There were 16 stalls at the market on Saturday, November 24 selling a wide range of foods from cakes and pies to home-grown vegetables and falafel.

After the church announced it wanted to sell Exeter Street Hall, the Prestonville community rallied together to raise the £200,000 required to save the venue.

So far campaigners have raised £120,000 by selling shares in the 138-year-old Victorian hall to the public and through fundraising events.

Shares can be bought at the rate of £1 each with a minimum of 50 shares which will allow a shareholder one vote towards any future decisions made about the hall.Interest in buying a share can be registered on the website

Donations can also be made at the website.
