Nov 29, 2016 Gala Night in Dorking This Thursday December 1st Dorking will have its annual Gala Night. All participating shops will be open till 9 pm. Here at Vintage Shrewd we will not only offer you a glass of bubbly but we will have loads of special offers to make Christmas Shopping even more fun!!! From 6pm to 9pm the High Street, from Pump Corner to Oxfam Books, and all of West Street, will be pedestrianised so families can roam safely. This also means there will be space for lots of live music from local bands, dancing, street entertainers, choirs and Christmas stalls. There will be a nativity scene in St Martin’s Church and in South Street you can take a look at the real, friendly reindeer. The town’s car parks will be free to park in from 3pm on the day.
