Welcome to Lyme Regis!
Plan Ahead for Lyme Regis Carnival Week 2nd – 10th August 2014
To help you get more from Carnival Week 2014 please click on the links below for important information.
Assistance and information can be obtained from the big yellow Carnival Kiosk which is located on the Marine Parade (sea front) for the whole week.
We expect busiest days for visitors to be weekends, Thursday night for the Torchlight Procession at 21:00 and especially Saturday Evening 9th August for the Carnival Parade at 20:00 and Fireworks at 22:00. Please come early!
There is live music in the performance area in the shelters on the Marine Parade on most nights until around 22:30 (varies see programme for details)
Park and Ride – please note that Park and Ride is operating to normal timetable. For evening events we suggest returning to your car before the Park and Ride finishes and relocating your car to an alternative carpark closer to the town.
Toilets – all toilet facilities in the town are operating as per normal timetable except toilets on the Marine Parade and Broad Street which will be closed shortly after the last scheduled event has finished.
Child Safety – wrist bands to write your mobile number on in case you are separated can be obtained from the Jubilee Pavilion on the Marine Parade and also the Lifeguard station on the beach.
Road Closures – short duration rolling closures to facilitate safe parades and events – roads will be reopened as soon as possible.
Thursday 7th August – 21:00 – Walk of Light Torchlight Procession 45 Minute duration Pound Street from Langmoor Gardens, Broad Street, Lower Cart Road, Bottom of Cobb Road by lifeboat station.
Saturday 9th August – 20:00 – Carnival Procession Pound Street, Broad Street, Lower Cart Road, Cobb Road.
We ask drivers not to park their vehicles on the above roads from 60 minutes before the event. We believe all car parks are operating normally at their advertised times for the duration of Carnival Week.
Part of Holmbush car park is used as an assembly area for carnival procession participants from about 18:00 Saturday 9th August. There is usually sufficient capacity for visitor parking as well.
We believe that provided the scheduled bus services are running to time, they are unlikely to be affected by our events.
