Weymouth’s Dusk ‘Til Dark free-to-attend event has returned this September with an underwater adventure weaving its way through the town. The event, a way to bring the Arts to the streets of Weymouth, was created by Activate Performing Arts – an organisation that promotes, supports and produces events in Dorset and across the UK.
In the build up to the 2022 Dusk ‘Til Dark event Activate held summer workshops in Weymouth where young people and children were invited to create their own underwater masterpieces.
Dawn Rondeau, We Are Weymouth’s chief operations officer, said: “The Dusk ‘Til Dark event in Weymouth is not just an opportunity to drive footfall to the town, it’s a chance to bring the community together to experience something magical. Something that the performing arts does so beautifully. The excitement as the giant puppet Dundu moved through the town last year was palpable and we cannot wait to feel the same sense of wonder this year with Peixos. Displaying the creations from Activate’s summer workshops has further engaged our local community and we know that children will be bringing their parents and families into the town to admire their works.”
