Visitors found out more about the twenty countries you would visit if you set off north, south, east or west from Bournemouth and Poole!

We offered delicious international food, free face-painting, drumming workshops, international challenges (learn to use chopsticks, write your name in Arabic) and also an inspirational talk by endurance runner Peter Thompson, who ran 44 marathons, in 44 countries on 44 consecutive days.
