The popular Christmas Market, which has been extended this year to include the whole High Street and Crown Mead, has been rescheduled for Sunday 26 November following severe weather warnings.
Wimborne BID manager Tammy Sleet said: “We’ve carried out a thorough risk assessment in view of the weekend’s weather forecast and sadly, we cannot risk this open-air event this weekend, especially in its extended format.”
The event will now take place the day after the Christmas lights switch on. The Christmas Market will run 11am until 3pm.
Tammy added: “However, there will still be lots going on this weekend with the Allendale Christmas Craft Market, jumble sale at Wimborne Community Centre, exhibits by Handmade Wimborne’s talented crafters at Walford Mill plus in the evening, Lewis Manning’s Candles on the Green’ event in the Minster 6pm – a chance to reflect, celebrate and remember loved ones.
With this juggle to the event calendar, free parking in Wimborne will now coincide only with the Lights Switch-On on Saturday 25 November. The lights switch-on ceremony is at 4.15pm with Wimborne becoming aglow at 4.30pm. There will also be live entertainment in Wimborne Square starting at 1pm.
The festive season will be welcomed in by the Wimborne Militia shooting muskets on the Minster Green.
