Following on from their impressive display at last year's event, Lyme Morris dancers will be entertaining the crowds during the lights switch on event on 30th November, performing their high energy traditional routine to the beat of drums and hum of accordions with the sound of bells tinkling and sticks knocking. 

Lyme Morris is a traditional morris dancing side representing Lyme Regis and Uplyme.  It was formed over 10 years ago and since then has danced regularly in Devon and Dorset entertaining locals and holiday makers alike and can often be seen at festivals or dancing on the seafront at Lyme Regis.  It favours the use of long sticks and its dances are high energy, high impact and focused on having fun for both the performers and the watching public.  A key aspect of the side is supporting good causes in both dances and monies, making significant donation to local charities. The side performs in its white and green livery and iconic top hats.
