The Inside Out Festival is a highlight every two years - exuberant, fun and daring. I've never seen anything as exciting in any community anywhere.

Love the inside out festival, have been to many different events over the years, our first one being Arkium in wimborne back in 2007, something we still talk about now. I love being able to take our children to events so awesome and mind blowing they cannot help but be inspired.

Inside Out and Activate bring free, high quality and exciting outdoor shows to Dorset that so many benefit from. Long may it continue and Good Luck!

Inside Out is a brilliant, beautiful Festival and they have supported Gobbledegook so much in making our work having commissioned us twice (Ear Trumpet in 2014 and Cloudscapes in 2016). Dorset is a stunning county and it deserves great art and culture - please support them!

Inside Out has provided some of the best events I've attended anywhere - not just in Dorset! Memorable, touching, surprising, inspiring - they absolutely deserve support. Long may Inside Out continue :)
