Enjoy a Weekend of Fabulous Folk Music on the Jurassic Coast

It’s a showcase for some of the UK’s most exciting musical talent, inviting more than thirty acts to play on a variety of stages and all with the backdrop of the magnificent Jurassic Coast.

Now in its fifth year, the Lyme Regis Folk Festival is blazing its trail on the West Country folk scene, attracting music enthusiasts from far and wide.

Lyme Folk Weekend 1st – 3rd September

Set up across six stages, each with its own unique vibe, this years’ line up of groups and solo artists is sure to live up to all the hype and expectation and is certain to hit the high notes.

With so much music to be played across one weekend, it’s hard to know how on earth the Lyme Folk festival impresarios plan to fit it all in.

Maybe you’re one of our guests already enjoying a stay in a Toad Hall Dorset cottage who likes the idea of a bit of a jig down at the Seafront Stage, or perhaps you fancy a last-minute dash to the Jurassic Coast to catch all the fun?

As Dorset’s most westerly town, Lyme Regis is located on the Dorset/Devonshire border: a picturesque seaside settlement where the narrow maze of steep and winding streets lead you down to a family-friendly beach with dramatic sea views. Another area in Dorset famous for its fossils, Lyme Regis attracts many amateur fossil hunters, and with several local museums, attractions, shops and galleries all dedicated to this geological heritage, it’s a great place for children to learn and explore.  A thriving coastal resort packed with things to see and do, Lyme Regis really is the perfect family holiday by the seaside.
