Description: From Friday 6th September to Sunday 8th September our small seaside town on the beautiful Jurassic coast of Dorset will fill up with hundreds of colourful dancers and the town will resonate to the sound of bells jingling, sticks thwacking and excellent music.
The hub of the festival is Sandpit Field, with a concert marquee, festival bar and dozens of colourful craft stalls. Concerts will take place at venues around the town featuring artists including Calan, The Tweed Project, Fara, John Kirkpatrick and Banter.
There will be opportunities to get involved with workshops, music sessions in the local pubs and the free entertainment on Sandpit Field. For something more energetic there is the festival dance at the Swanage School on Saturday night.
Over 50 traditional dance teams will gather to entertain you. Displays take place all over the town and a spectacular dance parade takes place on Saturday afternoon.
