Visitors ‘Discover Wimborne’ as a month-long community initiative begins

Discover Wimborne has returned for a third year with people across Dorset taking part in a month of events and offers organised by collaborating local businesses and Wimborne BID


The beginning of April has seen the return of Discover Wimborne – a showcase of offers, events and competitions held by a variety of businesses across Wimborne. The month-long event, which is organised by Wimborne BID, attracts people from all over Dorset to the minster town to experience unique events from bakers, coffee shops, pubs and restaurants, independent shops, printers, artists, heritage organisations and more.

The first event to mark the start of Discover Wimborne was a one-off beer brewing experience from Dorset Homebrew. Attendees at the free event learned from brewing experts on the processes of beer-making at the Dorset Homebrew headquarters. The first week also included restaurant offers from Rasa Sayang and Green Shoots Kitchen, live music at The Green Man, guided walks from Gullivers Bookshop plus the launch of Yellow Buses new route in Wimborne with a bus in Wimborne’s square.

Simon Thomas, Manager of Wimborne BID, said:

“Discover Wimborne is off to a great start. I’m so pleased with the number of people visiting from all over Dorset. The businesses have really put on a show so far and I’m really excited to see what else is in store for Discover Wimborne. Wimborne is definitely the place to be this Easter.”

There are a variety of events still to come across Wimborne this month as part of the campaign, with new events regularly announced on Wimborne BID’s Facebook page (@WimborneBID). Included in this list are Easter crafts at Wimborne Model Town, a tour of the Tivoli Theatre and a tour of Deans Court. Yellow Buses will be holding an event on the 27th of April in the town centre to celebrate Discover Wimborne and the launch of their new route running through the town. Aside from upcoming events, there are also many competitions and offers from local businesses throughout the month.

Discover Wimborne is running over the whole of April, with events happening almost every day. For more information on the offers, events and competitions running throughout Discover Wimborne, visit: or
