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. It 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, and now a Sculpture Trail.

ArtsFest 2016, will run from 17 September to 2 October and will feature a diverse range of artwork on the theme of ‘Identity’. Exhibitions are planned at three venues – The Malthouse Gallery, The Courtyard Gallery and The Baptist Church Hall. Building upon its first appearance in 2015, a sculpture trail will be laid around the town and seafront. In addition to work by ArtsFest members, 2016 will again see a student exhibition, showcasing the work of young artists from local schools and colleges.
