Art, Comedy & Shows

A safe space in which secrets can be shared in complete anonymity, a place to free guilt, cleanse the soul and unburden the mind – what would you confess?

The government’s £1.57 billion rescue package for Britain’s crisis-hit arts, culture and heritage sector has been welcomed as an “amazing boost to us all” by Elspeth McBain, Chief Executive of Lighthouse, Poole’s centre for the arts.

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.

Having been overwhelmed by entries to its first bedtime story writing competition Lighthouse, Poole’s centre for the arts, is to commission three winning stories to be performed in its weekly Sunday evening Bedtime Story video on Facebook.

Inaugural Dorset Arts Festival this July

Whilst a number of large scale events across Dorset have been cancelled, Sculpture by the Lakes near Dorchester, the hosts and organisers of Dorset Arts Festival, are confident that a strict visitor cap and crowd control, paired with extensive social distancing set in a vast 26-acre outdoor venue, can guarantee visitor, exhibitor and staff safety.
