BOURNEMOUTH'S Arts by the Sea Festival continued to wow the crowds on day two with more stunning displays across the town.

Huge crowds gathered to see a wide range of performances on Saturday, culminating in Hôtel d’Illusions at the Town Hall.

The attraction is a bespoke, site-specific spectacle commissioned for Arts by the Sea.

Using projection mapping technology, the façade of Bournemouth’s Town Hall transported the audience back to the Victorian era featuring magic, science and hypnosis, all popular themes of the time.

The town hall, a former Victorian hotel, was transformed in conjunction with Bournemouth University and music composed by local musicians.

Events will continue across the town today.
