Swanage Folk Festival

Early in September the sea front at Swanage becomes the stage for the annual Swanage Folk Festival, with kind weather this makes for a picturesque setting. Like its larger cousin, the Wimborne Folk Festival, this event spreads over three days and uses pubs and public spaces to stage a wide variety of music and dance.
