CANDLES On The Cobb will return to Lyme Regis and organisers have announced a whole programme of musical entertainment leading up to the unique event. 

The spectacular fundraising event – which will see 5,000 candles light up Lyme’s historic Cobb harbour – will be held on Sunday, August 26th.

The lighting of candles will take place at about 8pm but a whole day of entertainment will be on offer in the run-up to the event.

The Lyme Luggers Ukulele Group will perform from 2pm to 3pm, followed by Lyme Regis Town Band from 3pm to 3.45pm, Pasajada Ukulele Bank from 3.45pm to 4.15pm and a second set from the town band from 4.15pm to 5pm.

Harbour Voices, a local shanty singing group, will then perform from 5pm to 6pm. All the above acts will appear in the performance area of the Marine Parade shelters.

From 6.30pm onwards, Uplyme Morris will be entertaining along the seafront, as well as a Male Voice Choir, either in the performance area or seafront gardens.

Candles On The Cobb is this year being organised by the Rotary Club of Lyme Regis as part of the 100th anniversary commemorations of the end of the First World War.
