Updated 4:01pm Tuesday 6th May 2014 in News
HUNDREDS of people packed out Christchurch Quay on Sunday for a free folk festival boasting food, dance and traditional music.
Organised by Bournemouth Arts University students as part of their events management degree course, the festival – that took place from midday until 8.30pm – included a number of stalls, including arts and crafts and local seafood.
One of the organisers, Jamie Smith, explained: “We wanted to try to revive traditional British folk festivals of the past, but give it a contemporary twist.
“We’ve had lots of people milling around and performers with traditional instruments, such as accordions.”
The other event organisers were Harris Williamson, Alex Turnham, Petar Martic and Rory Marshall.
