PURBECK Folk Festival is lining up four days of fine music, great food, fancy dress, comedy, film and magic on Dorset’s stunning Jurassic coastline this summer.

Running over the Bank Holiday weekend, 21st to 24th August, the festival has previously attracted the likes of KT Tunstall, Show of Hands, The Carrivick Sisters and Karine Polwart, cementing its position as a cornerstone of the summer music festival circuit. It is now in its sixth year.

The venue is Wilkswood Farm, a 600-acre working sheep farm at Langton Matravers.

The four stages are contained in the farm’s ingeniously converted barns and a marquee venue that hosts the Purbeck Rising final and open mic sessions.

There’s much more than music on offer with a host of additional entertainment that includes a comedy line-up, an on-site cinema programme, art workshops, a fancy dress parade, a poetry slam and a beer festival with 40 local real ales, 20 ciders and even a Dorset pils lager.
