Bright & Bold:

 Celebrating the Dorset Landscape

30th January 2024 - 31st March 2024

The next solo exhibition at Lyme Regis Museum’s Rotunda Gallery is Miranda Pender’s vibrant collection of semi-abstract Dorset landscapes.  Recognisable without being realistic and playing freely with colour, curve and contour, these acrylic paintings give the viewer a quirky perspective on familiar landscape features, and their bright and bold colour palettes create a spirit of light-hearted optimism

Tuesdays- Saturdays from 10am until 5pm/Sundays 10am-4pm;  check website www.lymeregismuseum.co.uk for holiday openings and admission charges.

Rotunda Gallery, Lyme Regis Museum,
Bridge Street, Lyme Regis DT7 3QA

Don't get cut off by the tide

Nick Marks, previous Lifeboat Operations Manager, said “We would encourage any visitor to the area to check tide times before walking along the beach near Lyme Regis or Charmouth. The local area experiences very high tides at times, so it is very important to check.”

If you see anyone in trouble in the sea, call 999 and ask for the coastguard.
