Friday, November 18th, 2011

It’s that time of year again – Cracker Night is just around the corner, the OFFICIAL start to Christmas in Dorchester! The event has been running for several years now, and the turn-out gets better every time. Can this year be the biggest yet?

For this year’s Cracker we’ll be welcoming special guest Lee Latchford Evans from Steps, who’ll be doing the honours of switching on the lights for us. He’ll be hitting the switch at 6.30pm on the St. Peter’s Stage, so don’t miss it!

Late Night Shopping

As well as all the usual entertainments and amusements, Cracker Night is also an opportunity to do some late night shopping, with a large number of our most popular shops and other businesses staying open into the evening for you to peruse at your leisure. Many will be doing something a bit special, so look out for free giveaways and other exciting things going on all evening!

Christmas Stalls

Obviously the stalls are a big part of the Cracker Night experience, creating an authentic Christmas market feel with everything from mulled wine to mince pies and hog roasts. This year a website has been set up for traders to book a space for their stall, which will cost £10 for charities and non-profits, and £40 for regular traders.

The spaces are already filling up fast – take a look at who’s already going to be there.

See You There!

Cracker Night begins at 5.30pm on Thursday 1st December. We’re expecting a big crowd, and hopefully there’ll even be an appearance from Father Christmas himself, accompanied by one or two of his elves and reindeer!
