Major New Environmental Festival, Artemis, Coming To Motcombe

A major new environmental festival is coming to North Dorset.

Natalie Bourchier and Ben Hussey believe their idea for a two-day nature and sustainability event filled with talks, presentations and live music could be described as a ‘Chalke Valley History Festival’ for the environment.

They hope to attract 20,000 people to Artemis Festival. The event will not be political, and Ben says it will not be affiliated with groups such as Extinction Rebellion. The couple is planning a meeting next Friday at Motcombe Memorial Hall at 8.30pm for anyone who would like to get involved.
