A key part of our vision for Wimborne is as:

“A town where all events collaborate and share, for the benefit of events, of the town and of the local economy.”

The mission of the Wimborne Festivals initiative is:

“To create the infrastructure and relationships that facilitate collaboration and sharing amongst events and festivals; working together for the benefit of Wimborne’s community and economy.”


Wimborne Minster and the immediate area are host to a wide range of events and festivals.  Such events bring a number of benefits to the town, its residents and businesses, such as:

  • The town is seen widely for the beautiful and welcoming place that it is

  • Tens of thousands of additional people are brought into town

  • Many of those people return to visit and shop in the area

  • They add value to the local economy

Each festival has its own identity but also share many of the same challenges - ranging from storage through creating and maintaining policies to securing volunteers.

This web page has been set up to provide a focal point for festivals and to allow the sharing of information (below).


Take a unique town and combine it with local food and drink producers and hands on cookery demonstrations by passionate chefs, what do you have, Wimborne Minster Food & Drink Festival of course.


Wimborne History Festival brings the area’s fascinating past vividly to life with exciting events and activities in historic settings in and around Wimborne Minster.

Thanks to the support of our patrons, Wimborne Literary Festival is now into its eighth year. Our ethos remains unchanged and that is to bring Wimborne an eclectic, informative programme of authors, poets, workshops and events during the day and most evenings. 


A month of unique events, exclusive offers and fun for all the family!
