The Lyme Regis Society presents a Talk: 'Art Amongst The Dinosaurs'
 by Karol 

For a number of years, Karol Kulik has been organising the art exhibitions in the very top of the Lyme Regis Museum, a space known as the Rotunda Gallery.  Itís a pretty, tiny space, but for solo exhibitions of 6-8 weeks duration itís ideal.  

Of course, the majority of visitors are expecting dinosaurs, so what can local artists produce that makes up in some way for the lack of scary fossils?  

Well, in this talk, Karol will give you a roller coaster ride through the work of around 30 Lyme Regis artists who have bravely met the challenge.
2pm at Woodmead Halls. All welcome. Visitors £3.00. Card Payment available  Members Free. Including Refreshments  Socially distanced seating is available if required.



October 25th (Wednesday)

What's On at the Galleries October

Mysterious Adventures:

Paintings by David Brooke

11th October - 26th November 2023

David Brookeís paintings create a sense of mystery as people embark on unexpected adventures such as riding on the back of a large fish, or running across the landscape carrying a burning tree. The paintings themselves are meticulously built up in many layers of acrylic paint creating texture and detail. The style has a look of medieval book illuminations but with a contemporary twist. 

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

Guided Walks and Tours

Liz Jones Memorial Walks

Liz Jones loved walking and sourced over seventy circular walks in the area. For several years she and her husband David led the U3A Walking Group and after she died in April 2013 members of this group decided to make some of her walks available to a wider audience as a tribute.

The Group would like to thank David Jones for his leadership and all his support for this project - re-walking each route and checking our efforts. Our thanks also go to Susie Gamble for creating the model for the walk maps, Sue Wilson for her layouts and technical expertise and Maurice Liddiard for coordinating the project. Click here for more info


Get Fossilling on the Jurassic Coast! Join one of Lyme Regis Museumís famous fossil walks along this historic stretch of Dorset coast with Geologist Paddy Howe and Marine Biologist Chris Andrew. Some families return time and again to search with Paddy and Chris among the sand and rocks for fossils that have been washed down onto the beach after 190 million years. For adults and children alike, itís an unforgettable experience.
