Planet Purbeck Festival SEPTEMBER 2024

🗓️ Saturday 14th & Friday 20th – Sunday 22nd September 2024

Enjoy a packed programme of family-friendly events and entertainment at the annual Planet Purbeck Festival.

The festival celebrates Purbeck’s coastal and countryside environment through live music, arts, film, talks, local food and produce stalls, wellbeing workshops and kids’ fun activities.

This community-run festival aims to enhance the natural world of the Isle of Purbeck by raising awareness and promoting sustainable initiatives to tackle climate change at a local level to 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.
