Arts by the Sea Festival 2024

Event Date: 2024 TBC

2024 details to be confirmed.

In 2023, Arts by the Sea invited you to take a MOMENT and be present. 

For one weekend from 29th September to 1st October we’ll transform Bournemouth’s Town Centre. You’ll find artists, performers and musicians both local and national, who’ll use the power of creativity to enable you to connect to your own unique MOMENT.

Embrace the feeling of freedom for yourself in your own space, a respite from worry, from the past and the future. At the festival, your MOMENT could be watching someone whirl through the air, losing yourself on the dancefloor, learning a new skill, enjoying your perfect cup of tea, connecting with a feeling, embracing your senses, clapping with joy, feeling the sand underneath you or taking a deep breath in nature.

In a lifetime of experiences, it’s the MOMENTS that stand out, shining the brightest and most vivid. Collect them, share them or keep them as a sacred personal gift. Whichever you choose, we hope you explore, experience and enjoy a new and positive MOMENT with us.
