Lyme Regis Fossil Festival
Have you ever held a 200 million year old fossil in your hands? Have you ever dreamt of becoming a polar explorer? Can you design your very own prehistoric creepy crawly? All these questions and more will be answered in a weekend of science, discovery and fun at this year's Lyme Regis Fossil Festival held on Saturday 23rd to Sunday 24th October 2020. The Fossil Festival will once again host some fascinating exhibitions throughout the town centre including the Palaeontological Society, Dinosaur Isle, Bristol University and lots of local scientific organisations, as well as some thought-provoking and entertaining talks and lectures in the Marine Theatre.
There will be plenty of opportunities to follow in the footsteps of local hero Mary Anning by discovering your very own fossils when you join one of the many guided fossil hunting walks over the weekend. There will also be stalls selling a variety of fossils, jewellery and dinosaur gifts.
