The Imagined Village are set to kick off their summer live dates with a return to Bridport Arts Centre, the venue where the project was launched in 2007.

In the two years since the launch The Imagined Village have gone on to perform on Jules Holland's Later, headline the Cambridge Folk Festival and win the Radio 2 Folk Award for Best Traditional Track with their rousing performance of Cold Hailey Rainy Night.

The line-up includes Chris Wood (winner of 2009 BBC Folk Singer and Folk Song of the year), Martin and Eliza Carthy, plus the 10 piece band consisting of the best of the British folk and electronica scene.

There are two concerts to choose from, one seated and one standing.

Standing - Wednesday 24 June, 8pm

Seated - Thursday 25 June, 8pm
