The Arts by the Sea Festival will use Bournemouth’s spectacular coastline setting to provide 10 days of novel and exciting performances. This year the Festival will bring a renewed focus on visual arts and the involvement of local artists, through future competitions and commissions, as well as recognising 2015 as the International Year of Light. So expect a bright and vivid programme, in an unparalleled location, and some unexpected surprises in there too.
