What's on in Dorset

Wondering what’s on in Dorset? You’re in luck. This page will show you listings of a wide range of Dorset events, suitable for all sorts of different people and different age groups.

So whether you know Dorset like the back of your hand, or you are visiting for the first time, there is plenty to see and do to keep you occupied.

If you are looking for things to do this weekend, next month, or later in the year, you can easily see what’s on, and when. You can even filter the event listings between two dates to show just the events that fall within these dates, meaning it is even easier to plan for special occasions.

Whether you are looking for music events, comedy evenings, art exhibitions, children’s events, seasonal events, markets, fairs, or themed events, there are plenty of options to choose from.

There are also educational events, short courses, and workshops that are held regularly. These events are a great way to try out a new hobby or skill, and meet new people who share your interests.

If you want to tailor the events you are seeing further, you can specify the distance you would be willing to travel by selecting the appropriate number of miles in the ‘distance’ filter next to the location search box. You can also switch to map view to show where each event is located on a map. This is particularly useful if you are not very familiar with an area or if you are planning to visit several different places.

Each event listing shows details such as the dates of the event, the start and finish times, the location of the event, ticket prices, and contact details for the event organisers. With all the information you need in one place, planning what to do in your spare time has never been easier.

Are you organising an event? If so, why not upload your own event for free, so that other people can see it?

If you are still stuck for ideas about things to do, why not read through the Dorset Guides for some inspiration? Or alternatively, you can browse through the attractions in Dorset or places to stay in Dorset.
