Look to the Skies: The Seaside Town that’s Preparing to be Wowed

There’s a buzz of excitement around the Dorset coastal town of Lyme Regis as it readies itself for an aerobatic show of unrivalled brilliance.

Once again, the iconic Red Arrows will be putting on their annual display over the shimmering waters of Lyme Bay, for many the dramatic highlight of the town’s carnival week.


Officially known as the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows having been flying in breathtaking formation since 1964 and have firmly cemented their place in popular British culture having performed at more than 4,700 shows all over the world.


We are delighted that, once again, the iconic Red Arrows RAF Display Team is coming to Lyme Regis on 10 August 2017. We will be pleased to alter our planned programme during Regatta and Carnival Week to enable all the arrangements to be made for the display. We will be available to work with the organisers and Lyme Regis Town Council to ensure that residents, holiday makers and visitors will all enjoy the event. It promises to be another great day in Lyme Regis.”  – Andy Brown, Chairman of the Lyme Regis Carnival Committee


The display will begin at 6.15pm on Thursday 10th August 2017

The Lyme Regis Regatta & Carnival runs from 5th -13th August and endeavours to raise funds for a variety of local causes while organising fun events for both the townsfolk and its visitors, including a fireworks display, carnival procession and regatta races.
