Event date: Sunday 14th July 2024

For five long years, a Knob in Dorset has not been thrown. No Knobs have been painted, or pinned to the Cerne Abbas giant, or the weight of a big Knob guessed.


But now the much-famed Dorset Knob Throwing Games are back. The event, which in 2019 was forced to close, became a victim of its success as organisers found themselves unable to host the many avid attendees who descended on the festival each year.


Its 2024 hosts, the Cattistock Countryside Show, have for 62 consecutive years run a traditional family show boasting events for horses, dogs, ponies and now Knob throwers!


The Knob Throwing will see the return of all popular activities and events, as well as local trade stands and main ring attractions within the Cattistock Countryside Show. The event will take place in the picturesque Chilfrome Valley (9 miles west of Dorchester) on the Sunday 14th of July 2024.
