Poole Harbour Festival

The summer holidays are upon us so it’s time to book some family-friendly plans. Luckily, Poole Harbour Festival is the perfect way to kick off six weeks of sun and fun. It takes place next weekend, July 30/31, at Baiter Park in Poole.

Keeping kids amused in the summer holidays can be a challenge. Luckily, Poole Harbour Festival caters for all ages. Little ones will love the face painting and characters including Peppa Pig, the Minions and Elsa from Frozen roaming the park; arts, crafts and circus workshops will keep older children amused. And even the surliest teenager will raise a smile at the 30+ live music acts, including local bands alongside the UK’s best tribute artists. They can burn off some energy by trying out slacklining or watching the fire shows.
Mums and Dads can chillax in the beer tent, which stocks the best ales and ciders around. Street food stalls will feature local producers, of course: there’s even a dedicated tent for gin and champagne. Chin chin, darling!

Topping the bill are critically acclaimed tribute bands Oasis (Oasish), Stereophonics (Stereotonics), the Red Hot Chilli Peppers (Really Hot Chili Peppers) and The Jilted Generation whose Prodigy-praising act comes fresh from the Isle of Wight Festival.

Other confirmed main stage acts include Black Water County, Saints of Sin, Remedy Sounds, SN Dubstation and Lady Winwood’s Maggot. The second stage will feature the Mother Ukers, Matt Black, Lewis Jordon Brown and Rock ‘n’ Blues Co.

“We wanted to do something the whole family can enjoy together, that doesn’t finish too late but gives everyone a great day and a fun-packed night out,” said Poole Harbour Festival organiser Ben Dyas.
