This years festival will take place on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th August, 2017.
The festival started as a vision of acclaimed chef Mark Hix. The aim of the annual event is to promote his hometown Lyme Regis, Dorset plus the surrounding areas, by presenting some of the best food, producers and suppliers that Dorset and the South West has to offer.
The festival brings together top chefs, exhibitors, locals and those who are visiting Lyme Regis. The main stage will showcase a diverse mix of interactive cookery demonstrations, talks and tastings across the weekend.
In addition to this, all money raised is donated to the RNLI, the Fishermen’s Mission, Blue Marine Foundation and the Lyme Regis Sculpture Trail.
