Great things to do in Dorset this weekend: art exhibitions, walks, concerts, theatre, places to visit and other events and ideas
Bournemouth Christmas Market opens
Inspired by the traditional German markets, you can cosy up in the two-storey Alpine Lodge, meet Santa in the North Pole Grotto and test your skating expertise on the ice rink. The event runs for almost two months, closing in the New Year, so there’s plenty of time to enjoy the celebrations.
