“Burton Bradstock Festival 2024 started with the Spring Concert on 7 June, getting us into the groove again. The brochures are hot off the press and ready for distribution. Download here.
The dates this year are from 11 August until the Gala Evening on Friday 16 August.
All the detail follows in the brochure and Bridport Tourist Information Office will be releasing the tickets for the main festival concerts from the 1 July.
David Juritz has done his usual magic and put together a first-class festival with an array of amazing music and musicians. We love to welcome back ‘old faces’ and to meet new arrivals discovering the Dorset Festival with attitude here in Burton Bradstock.
As ever we thank our sponsors for their generosity without which we would not manage such a prestigious Festival.
The Art team are putting together an exhibition of local artists work and craft, which will all be for sale and will run from 1018  August.”

‘The Burton Bradstock Festival however, would not happen if it were not for a small army of volunteers. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who help to make this unique event possible’

Be part of the Festival

“The music is fantastic, but what makes the festival so special and unique is its small-scale, The Burton Bradstock Festival, however, would not happen if it were not for a small army of volunteers. The village becomes a hive of activity as local people prepare to accommodate the performers and cater for the visitors. One of the lunchtime recitals includes a picnic lunch. And no visitor will forget their first taste of Burton Bradstock’s famous homemade cakes with tea on the Rectory Garden lawn.

‘It’s very much a community affair. Local volunteers will be busy building the stage in the church along with the various marquees. Volunteers will be on hand to help 1,000 audience members find their seats. 

‘So I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who help to make this unique event possible. Our small but dedicated organising committee whose work starts as soon as last year’s festival finishes. My thanks also to our catering team, cake bakers, stewards, programme sellers, the ‘heavy’ gang and the Art Exhibition organisers and helpers. A special thanks to the villagers who open their homes to accommodate the visiting musicians. Another big thank you to our Friends, Patrons and Sponsors and the many others who help in a multitude of ways.

Inevitably from time-to-time people move or move on or simply have to drop out sometimes, so we are always looking for anyone who would enjoy working with our dedicated team in any of the roles that support the festival. If you can and would like to cook with our lovely group of cooks or can help in any administrative role, please email me and I’ll be pleased to meet you.”

‘Please come and join us and be part of the  team.’
