LYME Regis welcomed a step back to ‘normality’ over the Bank Holiday weekend, with crowds soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the return of live music.
Jazz Jurassica – thought to be the first live music festival to go ahead in the country since the easing of lockdown restrictions – hosted a packed four-day programme of entertainment.
The event was this year based on Theatre Square to allow for COVID regulations to be adhered to.
As well as ticketed events on the square and inside the Marine Theatre, festival-goers enjoyed three free afternoon sessions showing off some of the best musical talent from the region.
The festival also included buskers on the seafront and live DJ-ing from the team at Lyme Bay Radio, as well as a number of food stalls along Marine Parade and Gun Cliff Walk.
Jazz Jurassica organiser Julie Sheppard said the event had been blessed with good weather and an incredible standard on musical talent.
She thanked Lyme Regis Town Council and its officers and staff for their help over the weekend.
Many of those attending commented on how good it was to see life getting back to normal following the pandemic and people out enjoying themselves again.
The sunny Bank Holiday weekend attracted some of the biggest crowds ever seen in Lyme Regis, as the town gears up for what could be a record-breaking summer with the ‘staycation’ being favoured over international travel.
