Save these Dates

Saturday 2nd July to Sunday 10th July

Try This... Dorchester is trying a new, earlier date for its programme of FREE taster sessions this year. So whatever else you are planning to do in early July book some time out for Try This...


By moving the event from the autumn we believe that we will attract even more people because of the daylight for the early evening sessions, while also hoping for clement weather for the outdoor daytime sessions planned for the two weekends.







2016 Programme Taking Shape

Following the submission of all the session ideas, we are busy putting together the programme for 2016, finalising the day by day schedule and confirming the locations for each session. We are very pleased to welcome back some old favourites: Bell Ringing for Beginners, Nordic Walking, Cryptic Crosswords, Tai Chi for Beginners and Reading Old Handwriting, and there are many intriguing new sessions including: Walking Football, Hypnobirthing, Crowdfunding, Top 10 Apps for 2016 and last but not least Singing with a Rubbish band!!


In all there will be over 35 different activities to choose from. Our aim is to have the programme up before the late May bank holiday.


The sessions are led by local people who have volunteered their time, skills and knowledge. All the sessions are FREE but booking is essential as only a finite number of places are available for each session. Booking commences June 1st.


By the end of May printed programmes will also be available at many locations around the town including the Tourist Information Centre, the Library and the Plaza cinema.
