The Festival

Milford’s very own arts and music festival is a unique event. Taking place over a week in the summer, it attracts thousands of residents and visitors to local venues and onto the village green to enjoy a huge variety of musical and artistic entertainment.

Featuring performances, workshops and exhibitions, the Festival has become a must-see event in the New Forest’s summer calendar.

The Village

Milford on Sea is truly an extraordinary place to live and visit. One of Britain’s few coastal villages, it boasts beautiful surroundings, cliff-top walks and accessible beaches. At the heart of Milford is the village green, surrounded by independent shops and restaurants.

At festival time, this vibrant community converges on the green to create a unique celebration of arts of music.


Last year’s festival was another fantastically successful event, particularly considering we had some dreadful weather! Highlights included Loose Chippings on Friday night, ‘David Bowie’ and the amazing laser light show in the rain on Saturday, and the massed local choirs on Sunday (when the sun finally came out!).

Our thanks go out to our volunteers, sponsors, advertisers and performers for helping us to put on another great village event.
