Nyetimber Dorset Seafood Festival

Reeling Them In

Attracting 50,000+ visitors to Weymouth.

The Nyetimber Dorset Seafood Festival is a multi-award-winning event staged around Weymouth's Old Harbour. Free-to-attend, and attracting 50,000+ visitors each year, it is the largest event in Weymouth's calendar, one of the largest in Dorset and the biggest seafood festival in the country.

Resort is responsible for the organisation and running of the festival itself, along with the branding, marketing and website design. Here's a taste of what we do.

Event Organisation & Planning

Resort are co-founders of the fesitval, and took on sole responsibility for the organisation and planning in 2019. This process involves securing sponsorship for the event, taking bookings for trade stalls, organising chefs and presentations for the stage line-up, along with the co-ordination and running of all logistical aspects of the festival over the weekend itself.


The festival was re-branded in 2019 to incorporate new title sponsor, Nyetimber Wines. It was important to create something that reflected the quality of their product, and the quality of the event itself. The logo we created has a square and a landscape version for maximum versatility across print and digital platforms. 

Nyetimber Dorset Seafood Festival Branding

Promotional Material

We design and print leaflets, posters and advertisements to help spread the word to visitors. We also design an official programme which is free to pick up at the festival, containing menus, information on stands, timetables and more. We're lucky that the festival is so photogenic, the spectacular sights on offer around the picturesque harbourside mean that we always have some fabulous imagery to work with.


The festival website is another of our completely bespoke builds, which can be updated any time via our Full Control backend. With an event of this size, details change on a daily basis - being able to quickly and easily update all the content is of vital importance to the team.

Mobile App

The festival mobile app features key information from the website, including an interactive festival map which highlights your location and all the delicious food stands. It also features menus, stage programmes and a video showing highlights of a previous event. One change to the map, menu or stage programme on the website is immediately and automatically updated in the app (without the need for an app update), meaning that visitors are always looking at the latest information.
