Lyme Regis ArtsFest

ArtsFest is an artist-led group with 50+ active members that supports and encourages the work of artists in Lyme Regis and surrounding areas, fosters collaboration between artists and the community and, through its activities, enhances the local economy. It has organised an autumn arts festival in Lyme Regis since 2003, which features group exhibitions, events, workshops and an Art Trail. ArtsFest 2014 was from 20-28 September and had the highly appropriate theme of 'Weather Beaten'.  For information about the recent event, see the latest press release (at right). Details about ArtsFest 2015 will be available from Spring 2015. 

re:collection 2014

This ArtsFest initiative supported and mentored artists to create new work across the arts spectrum inspired by artefacts, images and stories in the Lyme Regis Museum. Although it culminated at ArtsFest 2013, exhibitions since then at the Museum’s Rotunda Gallery have showcased some of the projects (see news stories).  re:collection was supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
