The Dorset Knob Throwing and
Frome Valley Food Festival will
not take place in 2018 but will
return in 2019. There are a
number of reasons for this
yearís cancellation. We have a
relatively new organising
committee. There is an enormous
amount of work involved in
running the event and we wanted
to be absolutely sure that we
had the expertise and experience
necessary. There was also some
discussion about whether, after
10 years, the event had run its
course. This was very clearly
answered for us by the immense
support we have received from
the public and Dorset food
traders since announcing the
2018 cancellation. Everyone
seems to love it so we will go
ahead in 2019 and are hugely
looking forward to it. The
Dorset Knob Throwing is a zany,
quintessentially British event
which has caught the public
imagination. Itís great fun and
will be back. We have outgrown
the village of Cattistock where
the event started and have moved
to Kingston Maurward College.
With the College as a partner
and Moores Biscuits as our
principal sponsor and supplier
of Dorset Knobs we are hugely
looking forward to the future.
Moores, creators of the famous Dorset Knob, along with Dorset Tea and Dorset Food & Drink partnership all assist us in supporting the unique Dorset event.
Beside Knob Throwing there will be additional fun knob attractions including Knob Eating, Knob Painting, a Knob & Spoon Race, Guess the weight of the Big Knob, Knob Darts and a Knob Pyramid. and other more traditional entertainment will be laid on to make this a really enjoyable day out with a difference.
The Frome Valley Food Fest will run along side the Knob Throwing. There will be a the opportunity to sample, taste and purchase a fine range of foods including breads, cheeses, ciders, meats game & poultry, pies, preserves, and puddings in addition to chocolate, coffee and wine supplied by well respected local businesses.
