Here it is - the  4th b-side festival, held exclusively on the intriguing Isle of Portland.

This year we have commissioned national and international Artists to make work in response to Portland, UK.  You can expect an eclectic mix of visual art, text, sound, installation, live art and performance. Artists have explored the island’s heritage, cultural history and local taboos as well as Portland’s special ecology and geology to bring you their unique interpretation of place.

We have curated a programme of original work: sometimes poignant or challenging, sometimes celebratory and frequently witty.  You will find this work on footpaths, in a living room, a library, a cafe, within a prison wall, at bus stops, in a church and more traditionally, in a gallery and theatre.

There is a wealth of events to experience and participate in: including a mass night time bike ride, cabaret, walks, film screenings and a shed-based communal reading experience!
