Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Torchlight Procession

Dates for next event to be confirmed

Langmoor and Lister Gardens will flow with a river of light as hundreds gather for a special Torchlight Procession to mark the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

The event takes place on the evening of Thursday 2nd June, the first day of an extended 4-day bank holiday weekend.

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 before the town's Mayor lights a beacon on the North Wall of the harbour.

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.

Those wanting to take part can reserve their torches in advance via the Lyme Regis Regatta and Carnival website. You can also purchase from 8.15pm at the entrance to Langmoor and Lister Gardens on the day of the event although it is advised to purchase in advance to avoid disappointment as number are limited.

Torches are available for £5 each. LED foam batons for children under 16 cost just £3.00.
