WELCOME TO PURBECK ART WEEKS FESTIVAL – a fortnight of opportunity to see amazing art, and hear world-class music and talks. We have a huge range of artistic riches to inspire – from painting, photography and sculpture to ceramics, glass and mosaics, digital art and much more. The theme for this year’s PAW is ‘movement’ in all its various interpretations.
PAW is a full arts festival. Enjoy exploring our Open Studios and central collective exhibition at Rollington Barn with its courtyard café. Relax in the evenings with a wide range of superb concerts, talks, jazz, and film. There is something for everyone!
Celebrating art in the community is important to us. This year a record number of schools are taking part in our Purbeck Young Artists scheme – their imaginative results will be displayed at Rollington Barn.
Tickets for events can be bought here online. You will find copies of our brochure and live events programme (£2) in the Wareham and Swanage TICs, shops and elsewhere.
We hope you enjoy everything the festival has to offer!
