Music and Performance @ Sandy Hill Arts
Music and Performance at Sandy Hill
We want to strengthen community engagement and access to music in Purbeck. Sandy Hill Arts is a unique venue and a potential hub for a rich programme of musical events and workshops. We wish to showcase quality and experimental music from elsewhere, but also support rising local talent.
You can see our current programme here – these are confirmed acts, there will be others in development….

We love a good news story….
Local student musician Finlay, who played on site when the Fantasy Orchestra included us in their bicycle tour, has been accepted to join the National Youth Concert Band playing his beloved bass trombone.
We were more than happy for Fin to film an online audition in Room 14, our exhibition, class room, and occasional rehearsal and performance space.
Fin is now looking forward to a week of rehearsals culminating in a concert at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire including Symphony No. 1 “The Lord of the Rings” by Johan de Meij. https://www.nycb.co.uk/
Fin’s mum says, “Many thanks to Sandy Hill Arts for creating these opportunities to play with other musicians, wonderful memories for musicians and parents!”
Room 14 is often available as an affordable rehearsal space, and we hope to have a second classroom/rehearsal space available later in the year.
If you are a local musician or small band looking for somewhere to rehearse please get in touch…
