Knob Throwing in Dorset


Come Along to Dorset’s Famous and Only Knob-Throwing Day Out Sunday May 3rd 2015

Before I continue, I should probably explain what a Dorset Knob (created by Moores) is…

Dorset Knob Throwing

Source: Dorset Knob at Wikipedia – A Dorset knob is a hard dry savoury biscuit which is now produced by only a single producer, for a limited time of the year. Dorset knobs are made from bread dough which contains extra sugar and butter. They are rolled and shaped by hand.

The Knob throwing event is an annual event held at Cattistock which  lies midway between Dorchester and Yeovil and the event will be held in the centre of this wonderful, picturesque village.

As well as Knob Throwing, there will also be:

  • Knob Eating
  • Knob Painting
  • Knob & Spoon Race
  • Guess the weight of the Big Knob
  • Knob Darts and a Knob Pyramid
