Completely different to the rest of Dorset, the Isle of Portland is full of rugged charm. Sat right on...
Wessex Folk Festival, Weymouth Harbour
2nd, 3rd and 4th June 2017
Our beautiful Weymouth Harbour plays host to the Wessex Folk Festival again this year and we are so happy to be sponsoring one of our absolute favourite events of the season.
Morris Dancing on the harbour in the glorious June sunshine, with a bag of freshly caught cockles and an ice cold beer sounds just wonderful to us here at Dream Cottages! Add to that the best Folk Bands in the country playing across two stages (one harbourside and one on Hope Square), trade stands running along the harbour and delicious food stalls offering a whole range of Dorset delights.
Even more pubs and restaurants are getting in on the action this year, where their doors will be flung open and they will be offering free music sessions inside. Free workshops will also be available for those wishing to learn some Folk Music or Morris Dancing skills.
Weymouth becomes electric during the Wessex Folk Festival. The sun shines on the most picturesque harbour in Europe, dancers fill the cobbles, the streets are bustling with people, milling around, shopping the market stalls or dining al fresco with their very own live concert going on around them.
If you are renting one of our Dream Cottages around the beginning of June, we highly recommend hot footing it down to Weymouth, to soak up this great summer atmosphere and fantastic music. It’s great for families, children and dogs alike and best of all, it is completely free to attend! We look forward to seeing you there!
