Lyme Regis Torchlight Procession

Langmoor and Lister Gardens will flow with a river of light as hundreds gather for the magical Torchlight Procession providing a spectacular start to Lyme Regis Carnival Week.

Participants walk with flaming torches through the gardens down onto the sandy beach where a ring of fire is formed. Torchbearers then cast their torches to ignite a giant beacon on the beach.

It’s a wonderful experience for those taking part and a truly breathtaking spectacle for those watching.

The best vantage point to witness this spectacular event is anywhere on the seafront in the proximity of the sandy beach or in the gardens above.

Torches are available for £6 each. LED foam batons for children under 16 cost just £4.00. Buy your torches online via the Regatta & Carnival websiteNumbers are limited so reserve your torches early to avoid disappointment.
