This takes the biscuit - Dorset Knob Throwing 2009

If you’re in Cattistock, Dorset, tomorrow why not try a spot of knob throwing? A knob, of course — for those of you not from these parts — is a round, crispy biscuit.

The second “Dorset Knob Throwing and Frome Valley Food Fest” is being held in Cattistock on Sunday 3rd May 2009. Once again Moores, the producers of the famous Dorset Knob

in association with Direct from Dorset and the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) partnership have agreed to assist us in supporting the event.

The Festival will run from 10am until 4.00pm and besides Knob Throwing there will be additional fun knob attractions including Knob Painting, a Knob & Spoon Race, Guess the weight of the Big Knob, Knob Darts and a Knob Pyramid. Free parking and other more traditional entertainment will be laid on to make this a really enjoyable day out with a difference.

Even the Wessex Morris Men will be there to dance at around 2.00pm on the village green

The Frome Valley Food Fest will run along side the Knob Throwing. There will be a the opportunity to sample, taste and purchase a fine range of foods including breads, cheeses, ciders, meats game & poultry, pies, preserves, and puddings in addition to chocolate, coffee and wine supplied by well respected local businesses.
