Description: Have you ever held a 200 million year old fossil in your hands? Have you ever dreamt of becoming a polar explorer? Can you design your very own prehistoric creepy crawly? All these questions will be answered in a weekend of science, discovery and fun at this year's Lyme Regis Fossil Festival held on 1st to 3rd May 2020. The Fossil Festival will host some fascinating exhibitions including the wonderful Natural History Museum, the British Antarctic Society, the Palaeontological Society and lots of local scientific organisations, as well as some thought-provoking and entertaining talks and lectures in the Marine Theatre.
There will be plenty of opportunities to follow in the footsteps of local hero Mary Anning by discovering your very own fossils when you join one of the many guided fossil hunting walks over the weekend. There will also be stalls selling a variety of fossils, jewellery and dinosaur gifts.
