🗓️ Thursdays – Sundays in the summer
Enjoy great local food, live music and stunning scenery at the Isle of Purbeck’s seasonal Pop-Up on the Hill.
Each Thursday to Sunday throughout the summer, the pop-up hosts a range of small businesses serving locally-produced food and craft beverages, along with regular bands performing, too.
Located just off the Purbeck Hills’ pathway, Pop-Up on the Hill is a welcome stop on a day’s hike as well as a destination in its own right.
The site’s equipped with outdoor, upcycled seating, but you’re welcome to bring your own rug or camping chairs to relax and have a drink, or simply order a takeaway for your walk.
Well-behaved dogs are welcome on a lead (note that there may be livestock in nearby fields).
It’s free to enter and you can check out which traders will be there when you visit by following Pop-Up on the Hill’s Instagram page: www.instagram.com/popuponthehill/
If you continue on the path you’ll come to the curious 18th Century folly Grange Arch, and nearby is the abandoned Tyneham ‘ghost’ village.
- Thursdays – Sundays in summer
- Open from 10am – 8pm (weather dependent)
Grange Hill, Wareham. Postcode: BH20 5DF
It’s a short stroll from the Isle of Purbeck Viewpoint car park to the Pop-Up, where you’ll be treated to panoramic views across Purbeck.
The entrance is well-signposted and just off the Purbeck Ridgeway footpath.
If you’d like to book a slot for your business simply get in touch with the initiative’s organisers or find out more online: https://popuponthehill.com/traders
You can book your stand for specific days that work around your schedule, or for the whole eight weeks.
