What is a Shaman?

Thursday 6th November at Woodmead Halls – 2.30pm. A discussion by the Curator of Ethnography at Exeter Museum on centuries-old practices involving interaction with the spiritual world. Illustrated using objects from the Museum’s collection. Organised by the Friends of Lyme Regis Museum.


Two exhibitions continue in the Museum from last month:

  • World War I and Lyme Regis: The lower gallery of the Museum contains a major exhibition commemorating World War I and the men of Lyme and Uplyme who fought and sacrificed all. Until the end of October.
  • Sydney Jessett, Lyme Painter: Exhibition in the Rotunda Gallery, Lyme Regis Museum 1st October – 1st December 2014. Sydney Jessett (1885-1961), whose work is not as well-known as it should be, was a prolific and gifted Lyme landscape artist. His work spanned the period from before his service in the First World War in Flanders to his time in Lyme, where he produced thousands of water colours of Lyme landscapes from 1939 to the 1950s.

For further information about these and future exhibitions, see the Exhibitions page.


The rockpooling and Lyme History walks have now finished for the winter, but there are still plenty of fossil-related walks on offer this month:

  • Fossil walks
  • Mary Anning walks
