• Purbeck Arts Week 2019

    Welcome to Purbeck Art Weeks Festival May 25th – June 9th 2019
    Open Studios including paintings, photography, ceramics, sculpture, glass work and mosaics, digital art, textile art and much more plus internationally renowned music ensembles, inspiring exhibitions, and fascinating talks come together every year in beautiful venues across Purbeck on the stunning Jurassic coast
    Purbeck Art Weeks (PAW) is offering yet another superb programme of music, talks and artists’ Open Studios and exhibitions across Purbeck.
    This year’s theme is ‘Flights of Fancy’ loosely inspired by the 500th anniversary of the death of Leonardo da Vinci.
    An eclectic and inspiring group exhibition in the magnificent Rollington Barn is showing the work of over 100 PAW artists. This is a good place to start – with delicious refreshments in the Courtyard Café.  The adjacent Byre houses a celebration of art and creativity by hundreds of local children from 17 schools across Purbeck. Pop up lunchtime gigs are written up on the Barn door.
