Join Wessex FM for this years 'Midsummer Madness' Dorchester Carnival! 

It's a full day of events, jam packed with live music, performances, food, drink, stalls, a parade, and entertainment! Fun for the whole family through out the whole town.

We'll be out and about through the day, so look out for us!  Our coverage is supported by Brewery Square.

The theme for this years parade is simply 'Midsummer Madness', and this can be as colourful, fun and interesting as you like. There will be various categories, including wacky wheels, best group and more...
