Get involved in our 'Very Dorkensian Christmas' and partner with us!

Dorking has experienced 35% growth in its population from 2011 to 2021. Many of our residents have enjoyed living in Dorking for decades, while others have joined our community over the past ten years due to our beautiful surroundings, the easy commute to London, exceptional schools and charming town.

Our diverse events have generated interest from national, regional and local audiences -- and even royal attention.

We’ve attracted crowds reaching 8,000 to 10,000 strong at our street festivals and generated media interest from the Times, Time Out, BBC, the Telegraph, Sunday Times Travel, Condé Nast, the Guardian, Reuters, and local media.

Our multi-award winning team creates bespoke content that resonates with our highly engaged audience.

Maximise your exposure with a sponsorship package

We are inviting our community partners to come together and join us as we plan to fill the high street with twinkling lights, festive market stalls, carol singers and performers, a stationary antique car and bike exhibition, festive music and entertainment, competitions, family friendly entertainment, Father Christmas, and a joyful Christmas parade that showcases our local community talent. It's a 'Very Dorkensian Christmas'!

BBC Surrey have even offered to get involved.

We are looking for community involvement - let's feature what Dorking has to offer!

Dorkensian Christmas

Let’s collaborate and create a spectacular Christmas event that will leave wonderful, lasting memories for all.

As the holiday season approaches, we are excited to announce the formation of the BID Christmas Committee, and we invite you to join us in spreading joy and creating magical moments. This is an opportunity for you to be an integral part of Dorking's Christmas event and make a meaningful impact.

We will meet every other Wednesday for a 30-minute sprint:

18:00 - 18:30

Via Zoom unless we need an in-person meeting

We will kick things off 19th July, 2023

By joining our committee, you will have the chance to contribute your ideas, skills, and enthusiasm to create memorable experiences for residents, visitors, local businesses and community partners.

To express your interest in joining our Christmas Committee, please sign up here.
