Stalbridge YuleFest have sold over 100 tickets to their Christmas Extravaganza. It looks like it's going to be a special evening for Stalbridge on Friday December 8th. As the YuleFest website explains: "There's plenty to do in Dorset over the summer but relatively little over the winter. We've created an event that appeals to the whole family, young and old, with music, good food and drink, children's entertainment and festive shopping opportunities. All are located undercover in a decorated and fairy-lit village of marquees and tipis surrounded by the sights, smells and sounds of Christmas.
For adults there's live music from a variety of bands plus an Oktoberfest style bar offering a variety of quality German pilsners. For children there's a dedicated marquee with disco, bouncy castle, skittle alley and face painting. Stone-baked pizzas, authentic German sausages, mulled wine and warm mince pies will be on offer and a variety of stall holders will be selling Christmas trees, wreaths, gifts, food and drink.
There are a limited number of tickets due to site and licensing restrictions so don't leave it until the day, book your tickets online and we look forward to seeing you there!"
A family ticket is £25 and under 5s are free. All profit from the event will be split between the primary school in Stalbridge and a children's cancer charity - so your ticket money goes a long way. And just in case you are thinking "Isn't it going to be a wash out if it rains?" The organisers have arranged 15,000 square feet of covered, HEATED marquees and tipis for the event and there will be ground protection mats between the marquees.
So book the date in your diary, then buy your tickets, either from Candys Newsagent in Stalbridge or from the YuleFest website, where you can find out more info on the event itself.
