Festival of Learning on-tour

About Festival of Learning on-tour

As if the Festival of Learning wasn’t enough, we have taken part in a range of activities on tour around the Dorset area (and beyond!) to give you a little taster of what to expect from the main event, with a range of free, fun and interactive activities. If you are always stuck for ideas on what you can do with your family on the weekends, we run some brilliant events in the run up to the Festival of Learning – you can find out below what events we will currently have on offer for you!
