Bournemouth Emerging Arts Fringe

28th April – 7th May 2018

BEAF has returned. Bournemouth’s largest independent art festival is in full swing.

Check out all the exciting events happening around Bournemouth with our comprehensive online Events Guide or pick up a programme at your local outlet (details to follow shortly).

This year we’re supporting local, home-grown talent through our BEAF commissions and Bournemouth’s finest creative minds have come together to make this cornucopia of colourful events, exhibitions, workshops & performances.

Street Festival


Language Timothy

A performance created for the shortest funicular railway in the world. A new site-specific immersive theatre performance for an intimate audience in the passenger cars of Fisherman’s Walk cliff lift.


Performer Lorna Rees tells stories of her relationship with the troposphere, and audiences are encouraged to look up and contemplate the mutability of clouds, as well as the mutability of humanity.

Rosemary Edwards

Rosemary Edwards will create a series of site-specific art-work in 5 different local businesses using the ‘waste’ material from each business as the work’s resource.

The Vodka Hunters

The Bournemouth native usually known for his large-scale canvases squeezes his work in to Boscombe’s bijou police Tardis.



Spread the word, shout it from the roof tops and follow us on our social media.
It is your support that directly feeds into the success of the different events and helps artists continue their brilliant work.
