Welcome to Dorset Allsorts

We'll be posting a variety of facts and photos of whatever takes our fancy as we wander around Dorset. They may be of churches, buildings, visitor attractions or natural scenes – in fact there will be all sorts! We hope they will give you a glimpse of some of the sights this beautiful county has to offer.

Swanage Folk Festival

We were on a walk that took us through Swanage, a pretty and genteel seaside town, when completely by chance we happened upon the Folk Festival.  It's been running every autumn since 1992 and spans a whole weekend.  There really is lots to see and do and is well worth a visit.

Completely unprepared for this, as laden down with rucksacks and muddy boots, we contended ourselves with watching the tens of different dancing troupes that filled the streets.  It was an amazing sight and great fun and I hope our photos do it some justice.
