I will construct explicit actions that are invariant under BMS/conformal Carroll symmetries. Over the last few years, we have developed a systematic procedure for constructing non-Lorentzian theories from limits and expansions of Lorentzian theories. To obtain explicit examples of candidate dual field theories for flat space holography, I apply this procedure to the conformally coupled scalar action, which leads to two classes of actions that are invariant under conformal Carroll symmetries. Time permitting, I will briefly mention ongoing work on the computation and classification of Weyl anomalies in such theories.
