What’s On in Weymouth

As a popular holiday resort, Weymouth benefits from a wide variety of of exciting events to delight residents and visitors alike.

One of the best known is the Weymouth Carnival, this year running across two days from 14th-15th August 2018, which always attracts huge crowds with a spectacular Air Display by the Red Arrows and fireworks.

The delectable Dorset Seafood Festival on 14th & 15th July 2018 is another hugely popular Weymouth delight, as are the regular events at Nothe Fort including a new 1940s Family Fun Day on May 26th, the Matchstick Fleet (8th June-1st July and 10th-27th August), Ragged Victorians (18th & 19th August), a Military Weekend on September 8th-9th and the 100th Anniversary of Armistice Day on November 11th 2018

The Wessex Folk Festival (2nd-3rd June 2018) and Sandworld Weymouth Sand Sculpture Festival (24th March-October), this year majoring on ‘TV & Film‘, provide yet more excuses (if any are needed) for visitors to come to Weymouth. For further details, please check We Are WeymouthLove-Weymouth or Visit Dorset local events listings

Events for energetic visitors include Weymouth Beach MotoX, Jurassic SPRINGtive (cycling) and Challenge Weymouth (Iron Man/Triathlon). Further details are available on www.bustinskin.co.ukwww.wpnsa.org.uk, and www.challengetriuk.com

Weymouth played a significant role in World War II: over half a million troops embarked via the town to fight on the beaches of Normandy, and the Bouncing Bomb of Dambusters fame was trialled in Fleet Lagoon, just to the west of the town. In 2018 the annual Armed Forces Day is being celebrated in Weymouth on 24th June.

Ideally located on the Esplanade, The Leam is able to offer its guests glorious views of many of these events from the comfort of its Superior Sea View rooms or its stylish Reception lounge
