A small festival set on a farm on the beautiful Jurassic coastline returns this summer with national and international folk acts.

Purbeck Valley Folk Festival will feature three full days of music across five stages from August 18 to 21.

Among the performers this year are Show of Hands, Kathryn Williams and the Mike McGoldrick Band.

Festival goers will be able to enjoy young folk, roots and world music and there will be plenty for children to do.

Also at the festival, which is held at Purbeck Valley Farm, will be music workshops, sessions, Purbeck Rising (bringing new talent to the stages), Purbeck Poetry Slam, youth music workshops, craft area, healing area, and a few other new bits and pieces.

Camping will be available with parts of the campsite looking right across to Corfe Castle.
