Planet Purbeck Festival

🗓️ Friday 15th – Sunday 24th September 2023

Enjoy ten days of family-friendly events & entertainment that focus on Purbeck’s coastal and countryside environment, including live music, arts, film, talks, local food & produce stalls, wellbeing workshops and kids’ fun activities.

This community-run festival celebrates the natural world of the Isle of Purbeck, promoting sustainable initiatives, tackling climate change at a local level to enhance & protect the area’s biodiversity.

The festival is also a great way to find out what local initiatives you can get involved in and a way of meeting like-minded people.

Outside of the festival, Planet Purbeck also holds regular events throughout the year and encourages anyone to get involved and support the movement.

Festival Fair

A hub of information, fun and games by the seaside

The festival’s annual fair showcases a range of various groups and organisations all doing their bit to look after Swanage and Purbeck – all of which you can either support or get actively involved in.

Browse the stalls, play some games, try out a new activity and relax to some live music whilst enjoying locally-produced food – all in the beautiful setting of Swanage’s promenade with views across the bay.

Here are some highlights from 2023:
