2021 Cancelled, Exciting 2022 Rescheduled. Talks in progress for digital alternatives for 2021

The Dorset Knob Throwing and Frome Valley Food Festival will, unfortunately, not take place in 2021 but, after a two year break, will return to Cattistock on Sunday 1 May 2022.

This decision was reluctantly made due to current Covid 19 restrictions and their anticipated continuation. The Committee took the view that to continue in these circumstances could put people’s lives at risk and felt that they had a duty of care towards all visitors, volunteers and stallholders. The Committee also felt strongly that the essence and joy of Dorset Knob Throwing is that it is fun – great fun. Without the freedom to mix openly the spontaneity and appeal of this event will be lost.

But we will be back. Dorset Knob Throwing is a zany, quintessentially British event which has caught the public imagination. It is great fun and hugely enjoyed by all involved – over 8,000 attended last time. With Moores Biscuits as our principal sponsor and supplier of those essential Dorset Knobs we are hugely looking forward to the future. Our other wonderful sponsors including Dorset Tea, St James’s Place Wealth Management and Cornish Mutual Insurance are working with us to ensure a successful and reinvigorated event in Cattistock in 2022.

Watch this space, we are in talks over digital safe alternatives for 2021
