Be very afraid…Lyme Regis gets taken over by witches, ghosts and zombies when the Lyme Slime Halloween Festival descends on the town at the end of October. The Spooky-extravaganza is getting even bigger this year with a week of spooky happenings around the town including beastly baking, creepy crafts, the terrifying trail and of course culminating in the 2km fiendishly fun run challenge along the seafront for the whole family.

Check back for the weeks programme of events


Run, walk or fly on your broomstick..


Just for fun or those of you who need to be scared to run fast! Wear your favourite Halloween fancy dress or paint your face ghoulishly and enjoy the spooky 2K (ish) course on your own, with your family or friends.

This is more than just a fun run, indulge in some icky lyme slime`witches brew’ if you dare, high five our loud scary zombie, touch some gruesome ingredients on the ‘trick or treat’ table, plus don’t forget to join in the spooky mass warm up.


Local community groups Lyme Regis Christmas Lights and Hubs Toddlers use the event to fundraise, providing spooky children’s games and competitions to help get into the spirit for a small fee.

Have a go at classic Halloween games like apple bobbing, ghost on a stick game, spooky golf or pumpkin bowling. Enjoy some Halloween arts & crafts, making ghosts in pots and bats on stretchy string & show off to your friends in the scary selfie booth. There will also be some delicious cakes to taste – if your dare!
