The Weymouth BID are delighted to announce that the Out Loud Festival is to return for a second year (Saturday, 25th and Sunday 26th June) and will again work together with the Lions Club of Weymouth & Portland to promote the 2-day event.

The Out Loud event financed and supported by the Weymouth BID was first held in the town in June 2015 and repeated in December during the BIG Christmas celebrations.  The Out Loud Festival will be a charity event and will feature many acts from around Weymouth, including musical acts, choirs, dancers, groups and many more at locations all around the town centre, including Bond Street, St. Thomas St. and St Mary St. In total there will be six stages located in Weymouth town centre.

There will be something for everybody at this annual Weymouth event which is always well attended by local residents and visitors to the town centre before the peak summer season starts in July.

Lions Club President, Mr Mark Lockie said; “Weymouth & Portland Lions Club currently organise a range of events including the annual Beach Motocross Weekend, the Christmas Day Harbour Swim and an annual free Christmas Show at the Pavilion for senior citizens. We are absolutely delighted to have the opportunity to organise another OUT LOUD charity event for the town. With the financial support of the Weymouth BID we have every intention of turning the town into a place of music and fun for a whole weekend.  We hope that local entertainers will give up a little of their time to perform and help us to raise some money for good causes while entertaining people in the town centre while they shop”.

Nigel Reed, Manager of Weymouth BID said The Out Loud Festival is one of eight events which are financed and organised by the Weymouth BID operational team.  These events give businesses an opportunity to build promotions and offers around the event which encourage more visitors to spend more time and money in the town whilst enjoying the Festival.  One of the BID’s business objectives is to drive more visitors into the town during the shoulder season months and the Out Loud Festival ticks all the boxes.”
