Christchurch is the place to be when it comes to summer events

We've been operating since 1978 so we have seen Christchurch change over time and we genuinely love this town we call home. When you Google ‘Is Christchurch worth visiting?’ The resounding answer is YES. 

Christchurch in Dorset offers a choice of award-winning beaches, coastal nature reserves and heritage attractions. But in the summer months it becomes THE place to be and even more so this year with a new music festival. 

Christchurch and the surrounding area has a jam packed diary of events this summer and the best bit, most are all walking distance from Riverside Park. 

So what’s coming up and not be missed?

The Mudeford Lifeboat Funday - Sunday 16th July - Mudeford Quay

The funday which raises funds for the RNLI local Mudeford lifeboat station has been running for over 25 years. With a fun fair, stalls, raft race and duck race it’s a fabulous FREE event (donations to the RNLI encouraged)
