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 15th-16th August 2017, which always attracts huge crowds with a spectacular Air Display by the Red Arrows and fireworks.

The Dorset Seafood Festival on 8th & 9th July 2017 is another very popular event, as are the regular events at Nothe Fort including the Matchstick Fleet (10th-25th June and 12th-28th August), Medieval Encampment (29th-30th July) and Victorian Day (20th August).

The Wessex Folk Festival (June 2nd-4th 2017) and Sandworld Weymouth Sand Sculpture Festival (April-October), this year featuring ‘A Life on Earth 2’, provide more excuses for enthusiasts to visit Weymouth (if they need any!) For further details, 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. This year the annual Armed Forces Day is being celebrated in Weymouth between 17th-23rd June 2017.

With its perfect location on the Esplanade, The Leam is able to offer its guests wonderful views of many of these events from the comfort of its Superior Sea View rooms or its stylish Reception lounge
