Try This Dorchester
A unique local festival offering you the opportunity to try something new
Try This Dorchester was set up in 2013. The project offers local residents the opportunity to participate in free workshops and taster sessions which are led by members of the community and groups from the area.
The aim of the project is to provide a framework in which people can offer a workshop or topic they are passionate about, while giving others the chance to try something new.
The programme is coordinated by a group of volunteers and offers sessions such as IT skills, singing, bee keeping, crocheting, drystone walling - plus much more!
You may have wondered what has been happening this year…. a lot behind the scenes! We have been developing a new web site which will help us to ensure that we can run the project more efficiently and also hopefully share what we do with other towns that want to try something similar.
We are now looking to hold our next Try This Dorchester in September 2018.
We also held our first AGM in November 2017!
