PROTESTERS have gathered outside Town Hall tonight ahead of another council meeting to debate the future of Civic Hall.
The protesters sang songs about saving the hall and held placards decrying Mayor John Burt.
Victoria Wardlaw said it was great to get a second chance to try and convince council that the hall should be kept.
Ms Wardlaw anticipated the meeting would be as long – and as loud – as the first one.
"I did forget my cotton wool to stick in my ears tonight," she said.
"I've already organised breakfast to be delivered, I think we could be here until seven in the morning."
Council will vote tonight on whether to rescind its decision reached after a marathon meeting last fortnight to demolish Civic Hall.
Councillor Belinda Coates, who voted against the original decision, has lodged the recission motion.
Earlier today council said 47 people had registered to make public submissions about the Civic Hall.
Fifty people spoke at last month's meeting, which stretched beyond 1am.
As well as the Civic Hall issue, there are another 20 items on tonight's agenda.
