The Dorset Arts Festival 2020 is one of the first larger public events taking place after the Coronavirus lockdown. The event launched today, Friday 3rd July, and carries on all weekend.

We went along on Friday to see the work on display, grab a tasty lunch and remind ourselves what going out is like!

There was an excellent selection of stalls with all manner of creativity on display and some demonstrations taking place. The setting is the gorgeous 'Sculpture By The Lakes' near Dorchester and a walk around the lakes made the day a delight. There was an excellent solar-powered coffee stall and paella on offer as well as catering at the Sculpture By The Lakes cafe.

People were social distancing appropriately and hand sanitizer dispensers were located at many points through the site.

The festival continues on Saturday and Sunday but booking must be done in advance via their website:

Location: Pallington Lakes, Dorchester DT2 8QU
