About the Fossil Festival


The Lyme Regis Fossil Festival is an annual event for the whole family. The Festival seeks to enthuse young people about science, earth sciences in particular.

Enjoy walks, talks, theatre, music, comedy, exhibits and lots of hands-on science for all ages. There will be a small Festival Market at the Marine Theatre, selling earth science and Jurassic Coast Trust related items.

Meet scientists from the Natural History Museum, British Antarctic Survey, Palaeontological Association, Natural England, Jurassic Coast Trust, Dorset Geologists, Geological Society, Lyme Regis Museum, Charmouth Heritage Coast Centre, National Trust, Dorset Wildlife Trust, National Oceanography Centre, Dinosaur Isle and many more.

Entry to all exhibition venues is free, and there is a small charge for walks and talks. There will be lots of street performance, as well as theatre at the Hub.
