Welcome to PAW

PAW 2020 Coronavirus update

In the light of the most recent measures communicated by the government this week on combatting the Coronavirus epidemic, the PAW Festival Trustees have decided we have no option but to cancel PAW Festival 2020.  We do this with great regret, but the health and well being of our artists, performers, audiences, visitors and volunteers remains our priority.

The PAW team, including all our volunteers, and our performers and artists are very disappointed as you can imagine.  We will now look forward with determination and optimism to a great PAW 2021.

However,  please enjoy as much of the work of our artists as you can on this website. Click here to explore the artists’ Open Studios and Rollington exhibitors, enjoy our Brochure and Events Programme.  Some of the artists are regular exhibitors and some are new to PAW, have a look at what they have been creating, and follow up on their websites to see even more of their work. Keep an eye on our Facebook, and on this website as we try to bring you clips of the music you will have missed – but may have a chance to hear at next year’s PAW.

The arts are even more important during difficult times such as now.  Imagination and creativity will continue to inspire us!

Take care everyone and please keep in touch.

CONGRATULATIONS to all three winners of PAW's ‘Changing Seasons’ art competition. Look out for MARION SPENCER'S ‘Spring Dryad’ on the front of our Brochure, JESSAMY HAWKE'S ‘Clouds over Winter Trees’ on the front of our Events Programme, and SOPHIE JENKIN'S ‘Purple Heather and Old Harry Rocks’ on our PAW poster. Each striking yet so different. Congratulations to all of you!

'Changing Seasons' is this year's theme for PAW - and will be expressed in many different ways through art and music over the Festival fortnight.

Keep your eyes open for our Brochure, Events Programme and poster from the end of March - in the meantime more details of what will be on offer can be found at www.purbeckartweeksfestival.co.uk
