Swanage proudly hosted a phenomenally successful Fish Festival last year! The event attracted thousands of visitors to our town and raised funds for Swanage RNLI, Swanage Pier and The Fishermen’s Mission. The Swanage Fish Festival strives to showcase Purbeck businesses by encouraging visitors early in the season. You can read more about last years event here.

The 2018 Fish Festival promises to be even bigger and ‘fishier’ attracting more visitors and raising funds for Swanage RNLI, The Fishermen’s Mission and Swanage Coast Watch.

President, Robin Hutchinson MBE says: “The Festival puts the spotlight on the top quality restaurants, cafes and bars serving fresh fish and drink and on the local fishing industry operating off the coast. With live cookery demonstrations by celebrity and renown chefs, live music and entertainment, Swanage Fish Festival gives everyone a reason to come and enjoy Swanage.”

On behalf of Swanage Fish Festival Committee, we invite you to discuss opportunities to sponsor the 2018 Festival. There is a wide range of ways to involve your business in the Festival and showcase your establishment, promote a special weekend menu and attract new clients.

How can you get involved?


The inaugural Festival last year was sponsored by Ortus Homes and Dorset Food and Drink. This year there are three tiers of sponsorship packages exclusively available to selected Purbeck businesses. Sponsorship opportunities range from a Headline Sponsor to individual event sponsors. For more information about Sponsorship packages, please get in touch below.


Our team of experienced media and marketing professionals will promote all our sponsors leading up and during the festival.


Over the course of the Swanage Fish Festival weekend, there will be a series of events and actives hosted at the Prince Albert Gardens near Swanage Pier. Currently, there are pitches available in the gardens for stalls to benefit from festival visitors. You can enquire about a stall through here…
