The Town Council organises certain set civic events during the year on behalf of the town, including:
- Community Fair – an opportunity for residents to meet a range of community groups operating in the town.
- Civic Day – an official invitation to Mayors and Chairs of other towns and parishes in the area to visit Bridport and West Bay.
- Mayor Making – an annual celebration following the election of the Town Mayor.
- Remembrance Sunday – the parade and Act of Remembrance followed by a church service and secular event.
We mark other events such as D-Day, St George’s Day, VE Day, VJ Day, Armistice Day, Queen’s Birthday, Armed Forces Day and the Mayor’s birthday by raising the appropriate flag on the Town Hall. The Mayor and councillors also attend events arranged by other organisations on these days.
