Sorted in Dorset, an initiative set up by the team behind the fantastic Party in the Park, is bringing together once again the local communities in a bid to embrace both Bournemouth and Poole, and the intention to take this event further into the hinterland of Dorset with their latest twist on family enjoyment, showcasing the huge range of talent we have here on our doorstep be it deepest darkest Dorset or embracing our phenomenal coast line.

Join us for the first event in Hamworthy Park on 21st & ‪22nd July, where you will be able to enjoy the tastes of locally produced food and drink whilst listening to talented resident musicians. With plenty to keep the whole family entertained, including children’s activities, we’ve got you sorted for something to kick start the summer!

The festivities continue during the August bank holiday weekend, where Shelley Park will be transformed into a hub of local culture. Taking place ‪on Sunday 26th & ‪Monday 27th August, this will be the perfect way to round off the summer break!

These two brilliant events will be helping raise funds for local causes including Friends of Hamworthy Park and Dorset’s Children’s Foundation.
