Thanks to our Trustees & Volunteers
We value all who are members of our charitable company and especially those who serve as our Trustees and on our various working groups. We rely on such volunteers and remain rooted in our local communities. If you would like to help us in any way, please do get in contact with any of our artists at their studios or at our collective exhibition at Rollington Barn, or our volunteers at any of our events. We are a community based organisation serving people in Purbeck.

The PAW Festival relies on its sponsors and advertisers as well as our volunteers. These show not only their support for our community but also for the enterprise, initiative and excitement we develop in young people across Purbeck.
We hope we in turn provide good value and deliver on the projects we undertake. We print around 25,000 copies of our brochure and it is distributed far afield. Our events programme is also highly regarded and, along with the brochure, is kept as an interesting work of reference and enjoyment. Our Website and Facebook similarly have an extensive reach, and with events such as our series of Chamber Music in Purbeck Houses, we maintain an exposure throughout the year. Sponsors appear in our brochure, events programme, on the web and also against specific events they are supporting where we may have additional programme notes.
Please support our advertisers and those who generously support our work

By joining the Friends you will help us:
- Encourage young artists across Purbeck
- Maintain a quality Festival and attract international artists, some of whom run workshops and give talks that inform and encourage others
- Keep ticket prices low so that young people in particular can come to many of our events for just £2
- Encourage all artists of all capabilities across our communities to work together.
We keep Friends informed of our plans and send Newsletters so you can plan in advance. We also offer Friends advance notice and priority booking for events likely to sell out and we invite you to special events, such as our winter programme of Chamber Music in Purbeck Homes, which has proved to be such an outstanding success. As part of the Winter 2017 series we thank Bill and Moira Purver, Norman Hayward, Dr Philip Mansel and the National Trust for allowing us to make music in their houses at Steppes Hill, Smedmore, Creech Grange and Kingston Lacy.
