Chesil Rocks 2019 will take place on the evening of Friday 21st June, with a selection of classical music performed in our marquee, and then on Saturday 22nd June, with a variety of music, comedy and other entertainment performed alternately on two stages - one outside and one in our marquee. On the Friday, gates will open at 6pm and the event will end at around 10pm. On Saturday, gates will open at 11am and the event will run until about 11pm. These two events will be separately ticketed. We are very proud to be supporting Samaritans of Dorset again. At 2018's event, we raised £9,500 for the charity - a significant proportion of their budget - and over the last seven years we have raised around £58,000 for Samaritans of Dorset. Suicide remains the leading cause of death in men under 50 and disproportionately affects certain occupations such as musicians and those involved in farming, but also mothers of young children and young people generally. This needs to change. As Chesil Rocks is not a commercial event, and due to our generous sponsors, the tickets, food and drinks are all keenly priced. We will have brilliant activities for children too, including facepainting, kids yoga and crafts, a treasure hunt, a woodland adventure, 1/2 sized Landrover rides, a magician, a play area and storytelling. Appearing on the stages will be a number of great bands and musicians from the locality and beyond and in our healing area we will have spiritual healing, a life coach and a clairvoyant medium. Those wishing to attend should be aware that Chesil Rocks has a 500 person capacity and we have sold out in each of the last few years - so buy your tickets in advance to be sure or if there are any left on the day, get there early! The food outlets will be similar to previous years with freshly made Pizzas, gourmet burgers, vegetarian and vegan food, gourmet fish dishes, freshly brewed coffee, cream teas and hot pies from Samaritans and also delicious ice cream. We'll have an amazing bar, with real ale and cider fresh from the barrel, wine and a selection of soft drinks all at reasonable prices. There will also be a fantastic Caribbean themed rum shop/cocktail bar selling an exciting range of cocktails including authentic Caribbean rum punch, Aperol Spritz, other cocktails, Pimms and Prosecco! PLEASE DO NOT TRY AND TAKE ANY ALCOHOL TO THE EVENT. We take our legal responsibilities very seriously, and having control over the supply of alcohol is one of them and can only be achieved effectively by being the only source on site. Our drinks are reasonably priced and the purpose of Chesil Rocks is to raise funds for Samaritans - so we are reliant upon bar sales. Please respect this! We will operate a Challenge 25 policy, where anybody who looks like they may be under 25 will be asked for proof of age before being supplied with alcohol. Security will be provided ensuring the event runs smoothly and safely. One of their roles will be to ensure people don't bring any alcohol onto the site and entry will only be granted to those who are prepared to be subject to a search, to include bags and other items being carried or brought in. On grounds of safety, we ask that those attending do not bring any glass or BBQ's to the event and only Guide Dogs will be allowed entry. WE ARE UNABLE TO PERMIT ANY OVERNIGHT PARKING IN THE CAR PARK ON EITHER DAY. PLEASE PLAN ACCORDINGLY. We are extremely grateful to Atlantic Audio who will be doing the sound and lighting and to our other sponsors including Weyscaff Limited who are again providing our staging and to farmer Robert Mayo who allows one of his fields to be the car park! Tim and Hilary Warren December 2018
