Welcome to PAW

This year we are looking forward to bringing you as much of a ‘live’ PAW Festival as possible – guided of course by what the Government says, as the safety and health of everyone is our prime concern. The dates for your diary are May 29 – June 13th.

Meanwhile, we are delighted to be able offer you our new on-line CHAMBER MUSIC SERIES led by local and international violinist Miranda Fulleylove, starting on Feb 27th. Tickets for either the complete series or for an individual performance can be bought on our Virtual Events site HERE.  We hope you enjoy it!

Calling all artists – if you are new to PAW and would like to find out more about exhibiting with us this year, including in our collective exhibition at Rollington Barn, please click HERE to go to our Members Only site. Applications close on March 1st.

Please enjoy browsing through our Artists. Some are regular exhibitors and some are new to PAW, have a look at what they have been creating, and follow up on their websites if you’d like to see even more of their work.

Keep an eye on our Purbeck Art Weeks (PAW) Facebook and keep up to date on our artists, events and PAW news.

The PAW Festival team, including all our volunteers, and our performers and artists are looking forward to PAW 2021 – we very much hope we can bring you a live Festival,  and look forward to seeing you all again. We’ve missed you!

Take care everyone and please keep in touch.


Our Theme Competition Gallery:

Every year we invite PAW artists to enter their work into a theme competition – for the selection of three winning images for the front of our Festival Brochure, Events Programme and posters. The theme for 2020 was ‘Changing Seasons’, which has morphed very naturally into ‘Renewal’ for PAW 2021!  We hope you enjoy some of the entries shown here.
