The Best of Dorset Show is a free event for the public, open 11am to 4pm on Sunday 22 March, at the Weymouth Pavilion and forecourt.
Love-Weymouth.co.uk will be at the show with a stand where we hope to meet up with members of the local tourist trade and chat about the re-launch of the site and our exciting new section being developed over the coming weeks. We’ll also be on hand to give plenty of free advice on how to get your business noticed online so please come along and say hello.
Now in its fifteenth year, the show promises to be another high energy occasion. Organisers are expecting over 1,500 visitors to enjoy a great mix of live entertainment, children’s fun, information and displays representing top quality attractions and services available throughout Dorset.
Popular features of this year’s show will include the Tall Ship Pelican (open for visitors throughout the show), Nothe Fort Re-enactment Group with live hourly canon firing and a chance to view the proposals for the Weymouth Town Centre Masterplan.
There will be a programme of live entertainment on the pavilion stage. This year we welcome the highly talented Ed Hintz, Let’s Dance, WOW Youth Theatre, Wey Valley School Choir, the Rock Choir and the very popular forces singing group The Decadettes. There will also be lots of balloon animal fun for children with the show clown Captain Stupid.
