Great things to do in Dorset this weekend: art exhibitions, walks, concerts, theatre, places to visit and other events and ideas.

Details of events correct at time of publishing. 


Hanford Literary Festival - Until Saturday 24 June

Hanford

Reading is a central part of life at Hanford with time set aside during the day especially for girls to settle down with a good, scary, exciting or even practical book. So it only seems natural that we should celebrate our love of books and words with a literary festival.
