The festival run from Thursday 9th to Sunday 12th September, with highlights including a spectacular visual projection onto Rufus Castle, stone coated trees in the Old Engine Shed, and a hidden, faraway city concealed in the ruins of the High Angle Battery!  There’s even audio to listen to when you jump on the No. 1 bus!

Creative Producer of b-side, Sandy Kirkby, has been telling James O’Neill from Air 107.2 more about what’s happening this year, including a special project in conjunction with the Drop In for young people on Portland.
