11th & 12th August 2018
Sat 11-8pm & Sun 11-6pm
Bath Road Park, Lymington
A celebration of our rich cultural heritage, local produce and links to the sea.
Following the success of last year’s first Lymington Seafood Festival, 2018 is gearing up to be even better! 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 around 300 different delicacies across the weekend.
The Festival will also host some of the coolest bands and artists and you’ll be able to quench your thirst with craft beers thanks to our main sponsor Ringwood Brewery or sip English award winning sparkling wines from Exton Park. There’s also a brilliantly talented line up of chefs in our demonstration kitchen.
Each year the event raises money for a different charity and we’re delighted to be supporting Sail 4 Cancer. The Hampshire based charity provides sailing experiences and respite days for those suffering with cancer or their families. We’ll have a fantastic range of raffle prizes all provided from our sponsors or stallholders, so given the event is free to enter, dig a bit deeper and help change someone’s life. Even just for a day.
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!
