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.  We have decided to take a rest year in 2019 and will continue in 2020 with refreshed inspiration.

Taking a break has already allowed us to grow and evolve other projects and interests. The Bournemouth yoga community is also close to our hearts and in 2019 we will be hosting an Integral Yoga retreat, and as Colourfest, will be putting on a few day events with guest speakers and inspirational teachers.

We are currently on personal retreat as we see the importance of this in what we do, and again want to thank all the artists, teachers, musicians and volunteers that have made this into such a unique and beautiful gathering.

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 will be working on other projects.


PLEASE NOTE  – We are an alcohol free festival
