This fun-filled event attracts thousands of people and centres around the stunning 18th Century Mansion House, its 750 acre estate, terrace, lake and gardens.

This year will celebrate 70 years of Land-based education at Kingston Maurward – come and take a glimpse at the past, stroll through the rolling lawns and past sumptuous flowerbeds to the Pimm’s tent, food terrace and bar; or for family fun go to the Animal Park for bouncy castle, soft play area and even Guinea pig fishing!

Enjoy live music, birds of prey, pony rides and tractor driving; browse trade stands, buy local produce from Dorset producers and watch student demonstrations.

See the stunning work the Floristry students have produced for their tribal-themed fashion extravaganzas at on the Main House terrace, which due to last year’s success is even bigger and better than before!

Dog shows will take place throughout the day – everything from Dashing Dog to Golden oldie, and Playful Puppy to Waggiest Tail – there’s something for all shapes and sizes! Registration closes 30 minutes before each class and places are limited to twenty dogs in each, so get in early!

For school leavers the Open Day is a great opportunity to find out all about the College too.

For the perfect day out for all the family get down to the Kingston Maurward Open Day – entry is free for everyone and doors are open from 10am until 5pm for the ultimate summer fun in the sun!

There is event parking available (please be aware that this will be located in surrounding fields and due to the high volume of visitors please expect traffic queuing into the event) and a free shuttle bus will be running from Dorchester South Train Station.
