Christmas Competition Time

17 October 2023

It's a Very Dorkensian Christmas and we are here to celebrate -- YOU!

We are hosting a Christmas Festival on Sunday 3rd December from 12 - 6pm and we are celebrating with a full programme of fun for everyone. Part of our event is getting everyone in our community involved, from our schools, to our residents, businesses and community groups. That means having something for everyone. This is no easy feat but we are working to include our entire community and to invite everyone looking to experience a magical Dorking Christmas to join us.

We are in this together

This is an event that is funded by businesses - your Dorking businesses. The BID is business led and funded, and together with our business community and brilliant partners, we are working hard to create a festive, magical event for all to enjoy. Check out our programme and have a look at our four fantastic competitions that provide a little something for everyone:

Best Vintage Outfit

Best Vintage Outfit

Get your glad rags on and dress up in your best vintage outfit for the Very Dorkensian Christmas! We will be out and about that day and our team will be taking photos of our audience's street style!

Please do dress up on the day and share your Victorian, Vintage, and Dorkensian street sense. Depending on the uptake (fingers crossed), we'll hold a competition after the event and will share a shop local gift voucher for the winner!

Share your unique vintage style with us - tag your photos at @hellodorking to get involved and our social media community will select their faves. Competition will be launched on Instagram and Facebook after the Coronation. Watch our channels and follow along at @HelloDorking.

πŸ† Winner Announced: 18 Dec

Best Decorated Tree

Vote for your favourite Decorated Christmas Tree

We have purchased trees for our Dorking primary schools for them to decorate (to keep and to plant for their schools). We will display the trees at the United Reformed Church at our Very Dorkensian Christmas Festival so that attendees may vote for their favourite tree at the event. Stay tuned and be ready to vote for these decorated trees! The public can vote on the day and voting will carry on online.

The winning school will receive books sponsored by Circular Dorking.
