A FAMILY friendly festival set in an area of outstanding natural beauty comes to North Dorset this summer.

The Dorset Midsummer Music Festival takes place at Warren Farm, off Cuckoo Lane, Bulbarrow, near Blandford, on June 15 and 16.

The event, founded in 2014, has previously seen performances from the likes of Lionstar, Ben Waters, DD Allen and Mi3.

This year’s musical line-up is still yet to be announced but Jamie Jigsaw will be performing circus tricks to keep little ones entertained, while adults can chill out in the Holistic Zone.

Foodies will be able to take their pick from Thai cuisine, wood fired pizza, seafood, hog roast and more.

Cerne Abbas beer will be served plus there will be award-winning tipples courtesy of Langham wines.

Camping pitches are available for tents and campervans for those who want to make a weekend of it.

Money raised from the event will go towards maintaining three historic churches.

Weldmar Hospicecare Trust, which provides end of life care for people in Dorset, is also set to benefit this year.
