If you’re anything like us, you’d have been eagerly awaiting the return of the Dorset Knob Festival following its cancellation while new premises were being sought. Well, thanks to the Coronovirus lockdown, 2020’s festival has had to be postponed once again – or so we thought!

This year’s Dorset Knob Festival will still be taking place only online!

While it would be a bit difficult to compete in knob throwing or guess the weight of the knob over the internet, there are still things we can do online, so this year we are focusing on a virtual knob eating contest.

The whole thing is being organised by Dorset Tea, who will be hosting the event on their Facebook page on the 10th May. They are looking for 100 willing participants to take part to see how many Dorset Knobs they can eat in one minute in a bid to raise money for Weldmar Hospice Care.

The organisers said: “The Dorset Knob Festival is a time honoured tradition and one that we won’t let Covid-19 cancel completely! We aim to offer some light relief for another bank holiday in lockdown whilst also raising funds for a vital local charity.”
