Pop Up events having become popular over the last few years. Traditionally they utilise empty shops or other buildings or spaces, for art exhibitions, restuarants or performances. They can last for a few hours, a few weeks and in some cases have become permanent fixtures due to their popularity.

According to an article in The Guardian from 2010, 13% of the UK’s retail spaces are empty, so the Pop Up can bring a bit of life to an area which may have been neglected, even if only for a short while.

Pop Up’s can also be about connecting people and this is our aim for Pop Up Dorset. It’s also nice to get chance to open up a building that doesn’t get to see the light of day that often.
