We're very fortunate that Wimborne Minster is a thriving town with many events in the social Calendar throughout the year.  We have a Folk Festival each June, a History Festival bi-annually, many special events over the Christmas period,

markets and one off entertainment or showcases of all sorts on our town Square.  Each are organised and managed by varying organisations which means it's not always easy to find a single point of reference for all the key dates.

We'd like to help but even we would find it a bit tricky to find all the information and then keep it up to date.  So we've gathered together some information on what we do know and are signposting you to specific websites.  We will of course list those events that Radio Wimborne will be hosting or supporting.


Allendale Centre

The original home of Radio Wimborne.  A very busy community centre with lots going on, some regular and some 'one off' events. For details see their 'What's On' page.

Dorset Architecture Heritage Week

Your chance to see buildings not normally open to the public. A rare opportunity! See their website for details.


Wimborne BID manage bookings on the Town Square and also have some involvement in other events, so their calendar of events page is useful, see that here.

Wimborne Model Town

The Model Town is a 'must see' to visitors of Wimborne Minster! There are often special events going on too.

The Minster

The beautiful church in the centre of town has many events throughout the year. See details here.

Priest's House Museum

The museum is for the whole of East Dorset and has many educational and seasonal events.  Check it out here.


Dreamboats have 2 or 3 open days on the Riverbank each year. See their website.

Folk Festival

Going for over 25 years, this family fun packed weekend is superb.  See here for dates.

History Festival

Every other year, a festival dedicated to a specific point in history, takes place in and around the town.  Check out details here
