Welcome to PAW

We will soon be welcoming visual arts and more live music back to Purbeck!

Between September 11th – 26th our visual artists open their Studios, there is a collective exhibition at Rollington Barn and we have our September Events which can be booked here.

Full details can be found in our online Festival Brochure.

We look forward to welcoming you all to the PAW Festival – we’ve missed you!

The PAW Festival team, including all our volunteers, performers and artists thank you for your support and we hope you are as excited as we are about being able to enjoy the live music and arts we have all missed so much!

Keep an eye on our Purbeck Art Weeks (PAW) Facebook for the latest news. You can join our mailing list for updates via the form on our Contact Us page.

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.

Take care everyone and see you soon!


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.
