A new five-day alternative arts festival on the Isle of Wight has begun across a range of venues.

Lost At Sea includes an Edwardian train adventure on the island's steam railway and a jazz concert by saxophonist Courtney Pine at Newport Minster.

BBC DJ Rob Da Bank, one of the organisers, will present an "alternative soundtrack" to the 1933 film King Kong in Robin Hill woods.

He described the ticketed festival as a "mind expanding adventure".

The Radio One DJ and his team founded the music festival Bestival on the island 10 years ago.

He said since that time he had met "so many interesting musicians, film makers, artists, actors, poets, philosophers and all-round free thinkers on the Isle of Wight" that he wanted to set up a "a small and wide ranging arts and thought festival on the island".

Lost At Sea ends on Wednesday.
