10th & 11th August 2019
Sat 11-8pm & Sun 11-6pm
Bath Road Park, Lymington
A celebration of our rich cultural heritage, local produce and links to the sea.
We look forward to welcoming you to Lymington Seafood Festival in August 2019! We’ve scoured the New Forest and south coast for some of the most exciting and innovative artisan food and drink producers who’ll be cooking up fishy delicacies from around the world across the weekend.
The Festival will also host some great bands and artists to get those flip-flops tapping and you’ll be able to quench your thirst with craft beers thanks to our main sponsor Ringwood Brewery, sip award winning English sparkling wines from Exton Park or relax with a gin and tonic from Conker Spirit.There’s also a brilliantly talented line up of chefs in our demonstration kitchen and we look forward to welcoming a couple of new exciting culinary masters to the Festival. We’ve also published our sustainability aims as we work to make the event as environmentally friendly as possible.
Each year we raise money for a different charity and we’re delighted to be supporting The Lymington RNLI for 2019. As a vital part of our coastal community the volunteer Lifeboat crews provide a 24 hour rescue service. RNLI crews have saved over 140,000 lives since they started in 1824 but they are much more than a rescue service.
The RNLI works to influence, supervise and educate people through Community Safety teams who provide critical water safety information for boaters in our Lymington coastal waters. It costs around £100k to run the station, so through the generosity from some of the Festival businesses we’ve got a fantastic range of raffle prizes on show. Given the event is free to enter, dig a bit deeper and help change someone’s life.
One last thing. Parking. Our beautiful Georgian market town isn’t blessed with thousands of spaces, but our friends at Lymington Council have let us use Woodside Park. It holds around 800 vehicles and is £5 for the whole day. See here for more information.
On behalf of everyone involved in putting on the Festival, to the chefs, the producers and bands have a great time…….and may the sun shine!
