it's that time of year again already for Swanage, the annual Carnival week which starts on Sat 27th July with an exciting acrobatic wing walkers display over the bay at 12.30pm, live music, events & a splendid fireworks display at 9.45pm. 
The carnival procession is on Sunday 28th & then it's a week of fun, activities, sporting events & live musicin the tent on Sandpit field - something for all the family!
One of the highlights of the week is "what's not my line" competition which most of the Swanage shops take part in - we will be taking part as ever & promise not to make it too difficult!

There is another firework display on Wednesday 31st & then again on the final Saturday to mark the end of the week - we like our fireworks in Swanage!


As it is usually an extra-busy week for our Swanage team, we are installing an extra gelato unit outside our chocolate house from Sat 27th for a week to help shorten the queues that can build up in our cafe, so that you get a speedy gelato if you are in need of cooling down!

Our Swanage Chocolate House is now open from 9.30am Mon-Sat & is open until 5.30pm, so more time to do your shopping or chill out in our cafe...which is also air conditioned - happy days indeed!

Finally, if you weren't aware, the chain ferry connecting Sandbanks to Purbeck is out of action for repairs at the moment, so please allow extra time for your journey around the harbour, or come by boat - there is a ferry service from Poole Quay!
