Welcome to Sandy Hill Arts

We are the new arts charity in Purbeck, Dorset, bringing events, exhibitions and education – as well as managing the the artists studios at Sandy Hill Studios. We have a new website on the way – in the meantime you can buy tickets for our first event on 21st May 22 at Eventbrite.

Elvis & Bowie @ Sandy Hill Arts 

Elvis is back! Stand-up poet, comedian, broadcaster and armchair revolutionary, Elvis McGonagall returns to Purbeck for Sandy Hill Arts’ first big evening event for 2022. A regular of BBC Radio 4, Elvis is well known for his energetic performances full of wit, intelligence and imagination. People have said of him “bitingly satirical, irreverent, intelligent and laugh-out-loud funny, Elvis has deservedly earned a reputation as one of UK performance poetry’s most cherished stars” – and who are we to argue? Performance starts at 7pm

Following on from Elvis is Bowie. Or rather Pop-up Bowie, aka Paul Antony – he wowed us at our Planet Purbeck Festival in 2021 and we are delighted to welcome him back. Paul performs the greatest hits of David Bowie, from every era of the iconic artist’s career from the 70s through to the nineties and beyond. Moreover he’s great fun – come and sing and dance!

‘For anyone who enjoys a great David Bowie tribute, Paul Antony presents the clinching argument as to exactly why he won the Bowie tribute award, as soon as he walks out onstage and begins to sing!’- ‘The Stage’.

New local food pop-up The Sprout & Bean will be serving from 6 pm alongside the bar, and we have a DJ lined up too….
