LEISURE: Arts By the Sea launch 10th anniversary photo campaign


The Bournemouth based arts and culture festival is inviting you to share your favourite memories of the event from the last 10 years.

To celebrate 10 years of bringing an inclusive and diverse mix of arts and culture to Bournemouth’s south coast, Arts by the Sea Festival has launched a commemorative photo-based campaign that past revellers can take part in.

Any of the festival goers who attended any of the events over the last 10 years are invited to visit the official Arts by the Sea website where they can upload their favourite moments in photo form.

Arts by the Sea will then publish an anniversary gallery online, during the festival weekend, featuring these images as a thank you to audiences from across Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole for the continued support.

Whether photos depict personal viewpoints of the many installations, loved ones getting roped into street theatre performances, or Bournemouth looking at its magical best, the festival welcomes them all.

While the full programme for this year’s event is still under wraps, Arts by the Sea have revealed that ‘Journeys’ will be the theme for 2020.
