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 will run from 20-28 September, and this year's emotive and highly appropriate theme is 'Weather Beaten'. Full details of the 2014 programme and artists taking part will appear after May on this website and (from July) in our brochure. 

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 3 of the projects. The next is Gail Sagman's '12x12' from 8 May-22 June (daily,10-5), followed by Ronnie Creswell's 'Inspired by the Old Town Dump' from 25 June-3 August. re:collection was supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
