Bournemouth Arts by the Sea Festival
September 29 - October 6
The festival is a rich mix of some of the best regional, national and international arts across dance, film, theatre, performance, visual arts, spoken word, literature and music.
Bringing intriguing, spectacular and (sometimes) down-right curious arts experiences to our seaside town. With over 50 events – a spirited mix of dance, film, music, visual art, literature, theatre, comedy and more. Utilising some of Bournemouth’s best places and spaces from the traditional to the unexpected. Our Arts by the Sea Festival extends Bournemouth’s popular summer season into an ‘Indian summer’ of arts.
