In June let your feet do the tapping at Wessex Folk Festival at Weymouth Harbour side www.wessexfolkfestival.com or join the Weymouth and Portland Armed Forces Day celebrations between 17th-23rd June.

Why not spend this Christmas and New Year in Weymouth. There’s lots of free entertainment including The Victorian Christmas Market that runs throughout the month of December, Santa’s parade, real reindeers, a snow machine and outdoor ice rink. It’s the perfect place to experience the magic of Christmas. If you fancy a dip in the freezing cold waters or just spectate, there’s the Christmas Day Harbour Swim off Weymouth Harbour. New Year doesn’t disappoint either with plenty of entertainment and revelry to celebrate 2018 in style.

New Year’s Eve in Weymouth has been highlighted as one of the best places in Europe for celebrations. Both visitors and locals put on fancy dress costume to wander around the town, soaking up the atmosphere and enjoying the wide variety of music events and live bands that feature throughout the evening.
