AN ART festival celebrating Portland is coming to the island this autumn and everyone is invited to get involved.

From September 9 until September 12, a festival celebrating all things Portland will take place where residents are asked to create art in their front window, garden, garage or driveway for visitors to see.

A map will be created showing all the locations where people have participated so residents and visitors can go and see all the art that has been made.

The festival has been launched by b-side, an arts organisation based on the island.

A spokesman for b-side said: "We are inviting everyone across the Isle of Portland to take part in this year's festival by creating something that celebrates the Isle of Portland.

"It could be a painting of Chesil Beach, a sculpture of Portland Bill, a sound art piece of Portland birds, or an installation of your favourite Portland moments - anything goes."

To participate, email with your address. For more information, visit the b-side website.
