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 from 20-28 September has the highly appropriate theme of 'Weather Beaten', and you can see the daily schedule by clicking on 'Workshops & Events'.  Our brochure is now available in local shops, TICs, and libraries. 

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 over this summer at the Museum’s Rotunda Gallery will showcase 2 of the projects. The next is Ronnie Creswell's 'Inspired by the Old Town Dump' from 25 June-3 August, followed by Dave Wicken's 'Strange Scenes from the Borderlands' (6 August-14 Sept). re:collection was supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
