Chesil Rocks, 23rd May 2017

Our 2016 event

A hugely successful Chesil Rocks took place on 18th June, its fifth year and the 500 person capacity event supporting Samaritans of Dorset sold out as in preceding years and raised more than £8,000 for Samaritans of Dorset - representing more than 25% of their annual budget.

A wide array of music, comedy and storytelling was performed on four stages. Music performances included sets from headlining bands Jess Upton & the Guilty Pleasures, the Gravity Drive and the Million Dollar Bash. Also performing were local acts Wilson, Jolly Boys Outing, Ken Watkins, Hustle, the Mighty Fine, Slipstream, the C Sharp Blues Band, the John Stone Band, George and the Red Rangers, Ian Sedwell, the Portesham Ukulele Band, Tamara Konstantin, Darron Garnett, the Unprepared Jug Band, the Dorset Wrecks, Seren, Magdalena Atkinson and the Band of the New Hardy Players. From further afield came The Strange and the Beautiful, Sarah de Warren and Meredith Baker

There were comedy acts from Tom Glover, Alf, Maggie Whitehouse and Wayne the Weird and storytelling from Jenny Moon. Catering for people of all ages, there were many activities for younger people including face painting and fossil painting, hair braiding, a den and play area and the fantastic storyteller Jenny Moon.
