Bank Holiday FestivalsTuesday, August 31st, 2010
What a cracking weekend for enjoying the sights and sounds of Dorchester!
The French Market did the trick in drawing the crowds in to the town centre – with a real mix of stalls, the foodies were kept happy with garlic langoustines, crepes and plenty of French cheese.
The Anonymous Festival
We moved up to Maumbury Rings for the Anonymous Festival on Saturday afternoon. Although the crowd could have been bigger, those that stayed to watch were entertained with some of Dorchester’s finest young music talent.
We were particulalrly impressed with Thomas and the Mock-ups who recently had airplay on BBC’s Radio 6 Introducing with Tom Robinson – so watch this space for this local Dorchester band!
A short break for Sunday and then Bank Holiday Monday saw Maumbury Rings transformed into a mini Glastonbury.
We arrived just after 7pm to find the party in full swing with what looked like half the town enjoying the live show. There were people up and dancing in front of the stage and local families enjoying picnics and the odd vino or three!
It was a fitting end to the Bank Holiday as the sun went down and the MumJums played a set which got everyone up and dancing including the blues Brothers, Soul Man, Aretha Franklins RESPECT and Mustang Sally by The Commitments.
We can’t wait for next year !!!
