Wow – we’ve been blown away by the number of Purbeck Rising entries again this year, and even more so by the standard. There are some fantastic acts in there and we’re sorting through having to make that difficult decision of who goes through to the next round. And then it’s your turn! From 24 July you can have a look at the entrants’ youtube videos and have your say on who goes through to the final on the Saturday afternoon of this year’s festival.
