Lyme Regis Beer Festival cancelled

THE annual Lyme Regis Beer Festival has been cancelled due to “escalating costs”.

The festival was due to take place at the Marine Theatre in Lyme Regis over the Easter weekend, but organisers announced its cancellation today.

In a statement on social media, organisers said: “Sadly we have had to cancel this year’s festival. The decision has been made after escalating costs have made continuing the event in its current format and location impossible to justify.

“We will be considering our options for future beer festivals in Lyme Regis.”

The annual festival has been held at the Marine Theatre for several years, originally organised by Mark Jenkin of the former Mighty Hop Brewery. It was due to feature craft ales and ciders from local breweries Gyle 59, Art Brew and Lyme Regis Brewery this year, as well as local music and food.
