Planet Purbeck Festival 2023

A celebration of land, sea and community across Purbeck.

A variety of events and activities to bring everyone together, have fun, celebrate the environment and engage with local sustainability projects.


Planet Purbeck Festival is run by the community for the community and takes place between 15th – 24th September 2023 at various locations across Purbeck.

There’s a huge variety of events scheduled to take place. These include wildlife workshops, forest schools, wild art and walks, Bollywood on the Beach, talks and films, foraging, feasting, street food and live music. We’re thrilled to be supporting the festival with our ‘Talking Tent’ and hope you’ll come and join us.

Date and times

Talking Tent

We invite you to join us at our Talking Tent, which will be pitched at Wild Woodbury, a cross promotion event in conjunction with Inside Out Dorset Festival by Activate.

Come and share with us what makes Dorset so special to you – we want to hear about your favourite places, memories and stories of our outstanding landscape. We’ll be joined in the tent by artists who’ll share their own stores too. There’ll be plenty of other installations on site for you to enjoy, plus the opportunity to explore Wild Woodbury – Dorset Wildlife Trust’s flagship community rewilding project

Our Talking Tent will be open 11am – 4pm between Wednesday 20th September – Sunday 24th September. Find out more
