Bournemouth Arts by the Sea Festival Line Up

The hugely popular Bournemouth Arts by the Sea Festival is back this September and there's a magnificent line up on offer.

The core festival takes place over the weekend of the 27th - 29th September with fringe events in the weeks before and after. The 2019 programming has a theme of Mind Matter - through this the festival aims to explore and challenge current attitudes towards mental health and spark conversations through artwork and installations inspired or influenced by mental health issues and experiences.

We've picked three highlights, not to be missed, from this year's programme.

Hôtel d’Illusions is a bespoke, site-specific spectacle commissioned for Arts by the Sea. Using projection mapping technology, the façade of Bournemouth’s Town Hall

Pyronix on The Beach | Friday 27th
Founded in Belgium in 2012, the collective Pyronix Production has mastered the art of taming the light based on a strong background in modern juggling, manipulation of light and flame sources as well as visual and pyrotechnic effects.

Submerge: Carnival SOS by Shademakers at Horseshoe Common | Sunday 29th
