For six consecutive Summer Sundays in Lymington, local artisans, musicians and crafters will gather together on the lawns by the Solent to share their trade, and entice the public to enjoy something different.   Including something for everybody including the little ones with children's playground and lots of entertainment.  There will be music in the Pavilion, enticing food stalls and art galore!

View the arts and crafts specially designed for the summer. Listen to the music and the concerts in the band stand for relaxing Sunday afternoon entertainment. There are always a variety of refreshment stalls and entertainment for the younger generation. And plenty of space for your dogs. There is a wonderful view of the river Solent for visitors and locals alike, and sometimes a glimpse of the Isle of Wight.

Different entertainments each week - details to follow.

Bath Road Park is just at the bottom of the High Street, next to Berthon Boatyard, RNLI and the Royal Lyminton Yacht Club. It is also a short stroll from Lymington's famous Seawater Baths!

Don't miss out - we have had huge success for the last two years - weather permitting. 

Discount vouchers available from participating businesses, restaurants, hotels and bed and breakfast accommodation.
