Frequently Asked Questions…

How long does the walk take?
Depending on the size of the crowd, it’s a half-hour walk which takes 90 minutes or so, because we stop to perform at various sites throughout Blandford.

How much does it cost?
It’s great value at £8 for adults, £7 for children and OAPs, or £20 for a family [discounts for booking online].

Is there nearby parking?
Parking is free on Sundays at the nearby Marsh & Ham Car Park (DT11 7AW).

What is your rain policy?
The show must go on, so bring a poncho or umbrella! If it’s really blowing a gale or tipping down, we may take the show into the Crown Hotel, cabaret-style. All of our illusions are waterproof.

Is the walk suitable for people with pushchairs and wheelchairs?
Yes. The vast majority of the walk is on level ground with dropped kerbs and gentle slopes. There is one point near the River Stour where the group walks down some steps and there is one steep slope over a railway bridge, but people with wheels can take alternative routes to the same destination without missing a trick.

Is the walk suitable for children?
Although our tour is designed for grown-ups, children (5+) will enjoy it too.

What if we are a large group?
There is a group rate if you have 6 or more members as long as the leader collects the money from everyone in their own group before we start. We’ll work to accommodate you if you e-mail your numbers and proposed date to (or use the form under Contact/Booking if you wish).

Why don’t you take your show to a major tourist destination?
Because Blandford is our hometown. We not only wanted to perform publicly more often (since our events are usually private), but we want to give something back. So the Baffling Blandford tour is a loving look at the quirky character of the town, with lots of facts as well as bafflement. You’ll see this Georgian gem with new eyes–guaranteed!

Is fluent English required to enjoy the walk?
If you don’t know English well, you will be especially baffled!
