Let us entertain you!

Weldmar Hospicecare’s Music By The Lake fundraiser returns in the summer of 2024, and it’ll be bigger than ever.

Now featuring three live acts per show, visitors will now be able to book luxury picnic boxes, rent chairs, and even book a pitch for their motorhome or campervan during the event, which runs from 5th to 7th July at Dorchester Showground.

Nine of the UK’s leading tribute acts will be taking to the stage, with the Spice Girls, Pink, and Robbie Williams on the opening Friday night. The iconic girl band will mark their 30th anniversary in 2024, as will Weldmar Hospicecare.

Saturday evening is one for those who love classic pop from the 1970s and 80s, with a headlining Abba tribute, as well as the music of Madonna and Duran Duran.

There’s a legendary feel to Sunday afternoon, where tributes to Motown icons Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross, and Lionel Richie will be performing live.

Once again, children under the age of 14 can attend for free, and discounts are available for those who work for the NHS, emergency services, and the military in Dorset.

Matt Smith chairs the organising committee, and says, “This will be the third Music By The Lake event to be held at Dorchester Showground, and it gets bigger and better year after year. We are so excited about our line up of acts, as there is certainly something for everyone. We’re proud that Music By The Lake is getting a reputation as a safe, fun, family friendly event with brilliant live music and a great atmosphere, which is becoming the flagship fundraising event of the year for Weldmar Hospicecare.”
