Celebrate 60 years of Dorset as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
During the last year many people have rekindled their love of natural landscapes and enjoyed both walking and relaxing in outdoor spaces near to where they live. Having time to sense the slowly unfolding seasons has also allowed people to reconnect with strong memories of past experiences in the places we know and love in Dorset.
Talking Tent offers a space to weave together threads of thinking and conversations about the living landscape of Dorset. Led by storyteller Martin Maudsley and landscape poet Sarah Acton, the project aims to capture seasonal connections and personal relationships with the landscape past, present and future.
Do you have a special place, a fond memory, a story from times past? Do you feel a connection to Dorset’s outstanding landscape and places? If so ‘pitch up’ to the Talking Tent at Symondsbury where you are invited to share stories, memories and hopes for the future.
The will also be the opportunity of joining a guided walk on Friday 24 September at 3.30PM and Saturday 25 September at 12.30PM and 2.30PM.Walkers are asked to sign up at the tent on the day.
