The aim of Lyme Regis Regatta and Carnival Committee is to put on a week of fun filled activities and entertainment in August while raising money for local good causes.

We organise other events including the Easter Bonnet Parade, May Fete, Bonfire Night Fireworks and Christmas Tree Festival.

The committee are independent, self-funded and volunteer based and rely on our wonderful team of helpers to ensure carnival week runs smoothly.

Carnival week kicks off with the Torchlight Parade, an amazing spectacle and culminates in the Grand Carnival Procession on the following Saturday. In between there is a host of family friendly activities from Candles Down the River to egg catching, welly wanging to teddy bears’ parachute jump. See the events section for full details of our programme.

Profits from carnival week go back into helping local good causes and over the years we’ve donated thousands to local organisations and groups.
