Thursday August 9th to Sunday August 12th
"Back and better than ever: the 17th Bankes Arms Beer Festival 2012 (in association with the Isle of Purbeck Brewery), has to be definite date in every beer-lover's diary! Set in Studland overlooking the beautiful Purbeck coast, this year the Festival will have over 200 Real Ale and Ciders, making it one of the best beer festivals in Dorset.
Along with live music throughout the weekend, a glass of Pimms for those who are not quite so partial to beer, and plenty to eat, there’s literally something for everyone! Watch this space for details of events throughout the weekend!"
I think it is free entry also, and the weather looks reasonable this weekend.
There are red mooring buoys in studland bay provided by the pub (about 7 of them) and good anchoring spots.
