Bournemouth Arts by the Sea Festival

29th September - 6th October

Every Autumn, Arts Bournemouth brings the Bournemouth Arts by the Sea Festival to the UK’s leading resort.

The festival brings intriguing, spectacular and (sometimes) down-right curious arts experiences to our seaside town. With over 60 events – a spirited mix of some of the best regional, national and international arts across 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. The Arts by the Sea Festival extends Bournemouth’s popular summer season into an ‘Indian summer’ of arts.
