Colourfest back at Gaunts House for 2020

Wimborne, Dorset, BH21 4JD

Dear Colourfest Community.  Thank you for all the love and support since we started the festival 7 years ago. It’s been an amazing journey and we have seen the event grow in depth and maturity.  As you know we are a small team of 2 and being a year-long project Colourfest requires a lot of dedication.

For applications for the 2020 event please write in to us from November 2019.  If you would like to get in touch with us this e-mail address is the one to use but please be patient as we are a small team and we also are taking care of ourselves.


PLEASE NOTE  – We are an alcohol free festival
