There are festive events both ancient and modern happening in town this year, writes Andy Greeves
Wimborne’s festive season begins on Saturday 25 November, with the Christmas Lights Switch On. There’s entertainment from local musicians, choirs and dance in the Square from 10.30am and the switch is flicked at 4.30pm.
The ‘Dorset Team’ Etsy Made Local Christmas Fair is at the Allendale Centre 2 & 3 December (10am - 4pm) with work from local artists and makers. It’s a great place to find a special present, as is Walford Mill’s annual winter exhibition with its vast array of handmade items for sale. Small Business Saturday on 2 December takes place in East Street and the Square, with late-night shopping to 8pm.
Downtown Abbey creator Julian Fellows is one of the guest readers at Julia’s House Carols by Candlelight at Wimborne Minster on 6 December (juliashouse.org or call 01202 644220 for tickets).
