Town Criers Competition
In July Wareham has its own Town Criers Competition, an annual event with funding gratefully received from Wareham Town Council. Starting off at 10.30 am a colourful parade of traditionally dressed Criers and their escorts, with bells ringing, makes its way from the Town Hall to the South Bridge before dispersing to the performance area on the south bank of the River Frome
Wareham Court Leet
During the latter part of November, nightly in Wareham and just after dark, a quaint band of men can be seen gathering outside of a hostelry, some are in top hats, some in bowlers, most are in some form of archaic dress and all are wearing a highly polished brass medal suspended from a red ribbon.These men are the Officers and Jury of the Wareham Court Leet: a present day survival of an ancient local court, which existed long before the current parallel systems of local and central government. They are carrying out a ceremony handed down through the generations, in some cases from father to son, since the time of the Norman Conquest.
Father Christmas Parade
The Wareham Father Christmas Parade is eagerly awaited every December. Organised by volunteer members of the Wareham Father Christmas Committee for over 50 years, this annual spectacle has become something of a local tradition and is eagerly awaited by children and their families. For any winter visitor to Purbeck, the parade is a must-see if you happen to be anywhere near Wareham on that particular day usually 2nd Sunday afternoon in December.
