Winter Highlights in Dorset

Dorset has plenty of things to see and do for every season for residents and visitors. As winter approaches, it’s essential to plan ahead to make the most out of your free time or holiday. With the popularity of Dorset, you don’t want to miss out on any exciting events, so it’s best to try and book at least a month in advance.

To help beat the winter blues, Johnson’s has put together some tips for the best highlights this winter.

Winter Highlights in Dorset – 

Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty – there are two performances that will entertain the kids and Disney fans this winter. Cinderella opens at the Lighthouse, Poole’s Centre for the Arts on the 8th of December and runs until the 6th of January. Sleeping Beauty is this year’s pantomime, and you’ll find its opening performance at Weymouth Pavilion from the 9th of December until the 1st of January.

Christmas At Marwell Zoo – Marwell Zoo, though not actually in Dorset, is one of the areas most popular Christmas destinations and they’re ramping up their Christmas spirit even further this year. There’s an enchanted experience to be had in Marwell’s magical winter forest. Mother Christmas is on hand to read the Nutcracker, and you can create your own Christmas Eve plate with the elves in their workshop. Marwell promises a unique Christmas experience for the whole family.

Johnson’s – Dorset’s Favourite Movers

One of the best parts of our job is talking to customers. Johnson’s moves hundreds of people in and around Dorset every year, and we make a point of getting to know everyone we work with. By doing this, we learn a lot about why people chose to move to Dorset, as well as what sort of requirements they need. We use all this experience to shape our range of services. Additionally, it helps to pass on tips for life in Dorset for people who are looking to relocate to the area.

Johnson’s offers a range of removals and related services. We know every area of Dorset, and we use this knowledge and our specialist removals skills and training to full effect.  There is no job that we can’t-do. If it’s a small local move, we’re happy to deploy our Man and Van service to make progress from A to B. If you’re moving from outside of Dorset, we offer much lower rates than most companies in larger cities, and we’re just as familiar with cities like London.

Dorset is our home, and we couldn’t ask for a better place to live. We’re never surprised when we receive a call from someone who wants more information about Dorset, and we’re always happy to discuss your next relocation or any other aspect of Dorset life.
