Jurassic Rocks Music Festival

Portland’s biggest music festival moves back a month to August and adds an extra night to be able to showcase over 25 bands.
Jurassic Rocks, the music festival held on the Isle of Portland has rescheduled from July to 21st, 22nd & 23rd August. Jurassic Rocks organisers took the difficult decision after looking at the advance ticket sales and requests from bands that wanted to play the festival. The new dates allow the festival to now run over 3 days rather than 2 and to accommodate all the bands. All current tickets are still valid for the new dates and now give 3 days for the price of 2.

4th August Update....


​​Due to the current strong winds and spring tides, together with more gale force winds forecast for the east coast of Ireland over the next few days, we have decided not to risk rowing Lexi May down the Irish Sea to Wexford and across 60 miles of open water to Milford Haven.

Instead, we are in the process of arranging to lift Lexi May out of the water at Malahide Marina and onto a trailer so we can bring her back to England and (weather permitting) continue rowing. 

Our original timescale for the challenge was 110 days – approximately three and a half months. Unfortunately this summer has thrown the worst weather at us in two decades, resulting in us losing 35 rowing days, which has put us massively behind schedule.

We now have a final completion date of Thursday 20th August at Bournemouth Air Show, where one way or another we will finish this gruelling challenge. Our new focus will be the total mileage we’ll have rowed around the UK coastline, which we anticipate will be somewhere around 1,600 to 1,700 miles. (2,560 to 2,720 kilometres)

In order to achieve the 20th August finish date, thereby releasing us back to our families and into paid work, it will unfortunately be necessary to tow the boat on land from Milford Haven down to the south coast.

We are extremely frustrated and absolutely gutted to be missing out on so many fantastic rowing passages between Milford Haven and the south coast, but trust that everyone who has supported, helped and encouraged us will understand the reasons for this change of route.

Charity Row  May - August


On the 7th May four Bournemouth based rowers set off on a 3 month journey to circumnavigate the 2,500 mile coastline of the UK in their converted 27 year old Australian surf boat “Lexi May” in aid of the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund and the Wessex Cancer Trust. They aim to raise a massive £100,000 to be split 50/50 between the two charities.


The journey so far has not been without it’s challenges, mostly caused by the weather and the occasionally need to call in the RNLI, but the crew continue their rowing adventure and have just finished navigating their way through the Caledonian Canal to begin their west-side row south. They expect to make it back to Bournemouth early to mid August (weather conditions permitting).

Other than back-office support (helping on a daily basis to find accommodation and berthing and running their website, social media and video channels) and an additional rower for the first few weeks, the crew are rowing self-sufficient and unsupported.

They still have a long way to go, both in terms of rowing and with raising the £100,000 for their chosen charities, so if you’re able to help promote their adventure online (or even on the ground) by sharing via Twitter and Facebook that would very much be appreciated, as would any donations either via Virgin Money or by text (TEXT UKRO99 £x to 70070 where ‘x’ is your chosen amount). Full details of their social media channels, updates on their progress and how to donate can be found on their website www.ukcharityrow2015.co.uk.
