We are delighted this year to have so many new artists joining our thriving Purbeck arts community and PAW Festival. Do put the dates in your diary and come and explore what will be an amazingly rich variety of Open Studios, with Rollington Barn, as ever, hosting our eclectic collective exhibition. Also at Rollington artists will be demonstrating their techniques in the Pop Up Open Studio, and adjacent to this is the Courtyard Café with its delicious cakes, coffee and light lunches – what a tempting combination! In the Byre, across the way, you’ll find an explosion of creativity in a show of art by Purbecks’ Young Artists. There may be other surprises too!

Alongside the visual arts we will be offering performances by some remarkable groups of musicians in beautiful Purbeck venues – including the return of Tenebrae by popular demand, the amazing Gesualdo Six who we are welcoming to PAW for the first time, and a performance celebrating of the extraordinary Hildegard von Bingen, the 12th Century composer and visionary. There will also be a Panel Discussion and Live Art events as part of our celebration of Portraiture, and an evening of poetry.
