MelWey Games

When? 03 July 2021
Where? Weymouth

  • MelWey Games

This year marks an important anniversary in Weymouth's history; the 450th anniversary of Melcombe Regis and Weymouth uniting to form one town!

We welcome you to join us on Saturday, 3rd July, at the Nothe Fort in celebrating this historic occasion and the first ever MelWey Games. A show-stopping display of games, competitions and fun.

The MelWey Boat Race will be our blue-ribbon event. An amateur gig boat race around Newton's Cove by two teams, one from Melcombe Regis and the other from Weymouth. Be sure to show your support from the Nothe Gardens.

The Games will host a series of competitions and other exciting activities held throughout the day. Whether you consider yourself a local strongman in our tug-of-war competition or an eagle eyed thrower of Dorset Knobs, you will have the opportunity to compete for your side of town.

The MelWey Games is proud to support local charity, Hangers Heroes. All proceeds of this fantastic event will go to support the many great causes Hanger Heroes support every year.
