Summer Fete at Museum of East Dorset

Summer Fete at Museum of East Dorset logo

Join us on 6th July at our Summer Fete. A fun-packed day for the whole family.

There will be a whole host of traditional games and stalls, plants and produce from our own garden, second-hand books and jigsaws, and old-fashioned sweeties. Kids can unleash their creativity in our craft zone and create their mini-masterpieces.

There will be live music throughout the day including an afternoon performance from ‘Vivamente Voices’ Community Choir.

Take some time to peruse the local makers’ market selling hand-crafted, artisan products, and don’t forget to get your raffle tickets to be in with a chance to win fantastic prizes.

Our tearoom will be open for hot and cold drinks, cakes, and ice cream and adults can treat themselves to a quintessential summery tipple at our Pimm’s bar.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Assistance dogs only.

This is a fundraising event and all proceeds go towards the running of the museum
