Chesil Rocks has been an annual music and arts festival since 2012, with all proceeds going to Samaritans of Dorset. Since the first Chesil Rocks in 2012, we have raised around £58,000 for the charity, equating to around 25% of their annual budget in each year. In 2018, we raised £9,500 for the charity. With no government funding, our Samaritans (who are all volunteers), need to spend much of their time on fundraising activites and our contribution allows them to focus more on what they do best.

For the first time, Chesil Rocks will be on two days in 2019 - starting at 6pm on the evening of Friday 21st June the Summer Solstice) with 'Chesil Rocks Prelude' - an evening of classical music, and then with 'Chesil Rocks' itself from 11am until around 11.30pm on Saturday 22nd June. Those wishing to attend should be aware that each event will be subject to individual ticketing. In other words, the ticket to one event will not entitle you to attend the other! You will need to purchase a ticket to each event.

Tickets holders to the Chesil Rocks Prelude will be entitled to a glass of Prosecco, or a soft drink on arrival and in the interval a light supper courtesy of Wagamama. Details on how to purchase tickets for either day can be found on the TICKETS page.

Suicide remains the leading cause of death in men under the age of 50, and 3/4 of people who take their lives are men. It also disproportionately affects certain groups, such as farmers, doctors, musicians, young people and post-natal women.

There will be a free car park available as in previous years, but it will be for day use only. Please do NOT leave your car in the car park overnight. If you intend to leave your car overnight, please park sensibly in the village.

We are very grateful to Atlantic Audio for providing the sound to our two stages.

Guide dogs only please!

It is incumbant upon us to ensure that alcohol consumption is legally and safely managed and to achieve that we need to manage the sale and distribution of all alcohol on site. Prices will be reasonable and generally less than is normal in a pub. Please do not try and bring any alcohol to the event and it will be a condition of entry that those attending are prepared to be subject to search. Those who appear under the age of 25 may be challenged to prove their age.

We take security and safety very seriously and will have an effective system in place to ensure people coming to Chesil Rocks are safe. Please show respect to those who are performing this role.
