The town has a history of putting on some immense displays for spectators, and usually does one display each summer, and one display around bonfire night.

Queen's Birthday Celebrations.

Below is a fantastic example of one of their Bonfire Night displays from last year.

The proceeds collected during Lyme Regis Carnival week go back into the local community, with donations awarded to local charities and good causes, since 2004, they have raised a total of £187,000 for local causes.
