Fun for all the family at Lyme Regis and Uplyme fetes

THE annual Lyme Regis May Fete returns this weekend, offering fun things for all the family – from entertainment, displays and children’s activities, to an artisan market, and food and drink stalls.

A host of entertainment will be held in the arena at the Anning Road playing field on Sunday, May 15 from 1pm, including displays from Lyme Regis Majorettes, Lyme School of Ballet, Lyme Morris and FitSteps.

Organisers from Lyme Regis Regatta & Carnival Committee are planning lots of things to keep the kids happy, including a bungee trampolines, a bouncy castle and inflatable slide, face painting, henna tattoos and hair braiding.

Carl Salter will be there with his giant bubbles and there will be a roving T-Rex and baby dinosaur to have our photo taken with.

Local clubs, groups and organisations will be organising stalls to raise awareness and showcase their talents, while a variety of wares from local artisans including crafts, jewellery, plants and much more will also be on offer.

There will be a varied mix of food and drink from local producers sure to tempt your taste buds, plus cakes and bakes, gourmet burgers and butties.

Uplyme Village Fete to be held next month

One of Uplyme’s most popular events returns after a two-year break during the coronavirus pandemic.

Town crier Alan Vian will act as Master of Ceremonies at Uplyme Village Fete on Saturday, June 11, overseeing a packed programme of entertainment, fun and fames.

There will be plenty to keep the kids entertained, including Puppetree’s Punch and Judy show, a bouncy castle and inflatable slide, and carousel.

Fete-goers will be able to get up close with birds of prey from Shrandy’s Birds, as well as the ponies from Munchkins Miniature Shetland Ponies.

Local musician Pete Wild will oversee the music tent, with local young people entertaining throughout the afternoon.

There will also be stalls galore, a variety of food outlets and tea and cake in the village hall with soothing live music, as well as a classic car display by local residents – always a great conversation piece.

And don’t forget to buy your tickets for the fete draw, with the first prize of £150! If the weather permits it should be a great day!
