Art Art Exhibition

The 2016 Burton Bradstock Art Exhibition was our most successful so far regarding attendance and sales of paintings and crafts. This was a reflection on the high quality of art work and crafts being exhibited. Our attendance was up by 25% and the sales of paintings,cards and crafts was increased by nearly 100% from last year.

Great thanks to all our artists who exhibited such fabulous paintings and crafts. The impressive standard of work that was on show reflects the talent that exists in West Dorset and surrounding counties. Also the variety of media and styles made it a wonderful exhibition for visitors and other artists looking for inspiration.

The visitors' book showed from how far and wide people came. One painting sold at the exhibition will soon be hanging in a house in California! The visitors comments on the welcoming atmosphere in the exhibition hall and the high quality of work on view made encouraging reading for the people who worked so hard to organise the event.

Thank you to all who visited and bought pictures and we look forward to seeing you in 2017 when the next Burton Bradstock Festival of Music and Art will be held. The dates for this have already been announced and are from the 12 August to 20 August.


Art Exhibition 13 to 21 August 2016

Village hallIn the heart of Burton Bradstock is the Village Hall in Church Street by the green. The Hall is converted to a vibrant, colourful art gallery for the period of the festival in August. On show will be original paintings, ceramics and wood crafts by quality West Country artists at affordable prices.

We are delighted to have  some of our best selling  artists from last year exhibiting their new work here again this year. These include: Jake Winkle, Marion Taylor, James Webster, Marnie Shaw and Lynda White.

There will also be a selection of  talented artists new to our exhibition showing this year.

This year’s exhibition will run for nine days from Saturday 13 – Sunday 21 August.

Open from 10.00 am until 7.00 pm. On Sunday 21 August, closing time will be 12.30 pm. The exhibition is also open during the music concert intervals.

Admission is free.

Throughout the week, sold items will be replaced by new work so it is worth popping in frequently to view the art, and enjoy the atmosphere. Hopefully there will be something which you might like to buy. The sale of artwork raises money for the Festival.

If being on the committee feels a step too far but would like to volunteer your help on an 'ad hoc’ basis we would like to hear from you. Email us


Thoughts from a member of our organising team

Art helpersFriendsPublished in Bride Valley News

Have you ever yearned to be part of the action, behind the scenes? On moving to Burton Bradstock 10 years ago, it was my top ambition.

For Art and Music lovers, the Burton Bradstock Festival which this year takes place 13 – 21 August, offers nine days of indulgent pleasure, fired by international musicians of repute, and widely acclaimed local artists and craftspeople.

The organisers of the Art Exhibition and Sale would welcome help from anyone interested in assisting us to prepare, run, set up and take down the Exhibition. We are a small group of diverse, friendly people, and enjoy first hand experience of this wonderful Festival!

Lucky me, I got involved 5 years ago. Do join us.
