​Knob Throwing in Dorset

Come Along to Dorset’s Famous and Only Knob-Throwing Day Out Sunday May 5th 2019

Note: If this event has finished, you can find details for the next here: Dorset Knob Throwing.

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

Dorset Knob Biscuits

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:

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