Category: What’s On
Er, hate to break it to you, but don’t forget that we lose an hour of sleep this weekend. My advice? Keep yourself busy and you’ll barely notice. Fortunately, there’s plenty happening out there, so crack on…
James Taylor Quartet, Tavistock Wharf, Friday 24th March
The groovy and soulful JTQ, normally seen at Ronnie Scott’s and the Jazz Cafe in London are coming to Tavistock, to support the work of the Tamar Community Trust.
Get in! It’s almost the weekend again. Well, it already is if you’re counting Thursday, which I totally think you should. This week’s Muddy Guide is a riot of giggles, culture and fizz, so get stuck in and enjoy…
Chagword Literary Festival, Chagford, Fri 17th – Sun 19th March
Only a few tickets left for this one, so if you fancy it, crack on! This will be the third year of the fab literary fest and, let’s face it, Chagford is one of Devon’s most beautiful towns.
A small but culture-packed smorgasbord of events to tempt you out this weekend and give you something to natter about at work on Monday.
Suzy Bennett: Artisans of Dartmoor, Riverside Gallery, Bovey Tracey, Fri 3 March – Mon 3 April
You may have noticed that 2017 is shaping up to be the year of championing British designers. You may not have noticed that Dartmoor has one of the most talented artisan communities in the country.
I’m not going to beat around the bush. There’s fun to be had and I know exactly where and when. So, uh, March to it.
Laugh Out Loud Festival, various venues across Exeter, until Sun 5 March
If you didn’t get your fill of comedy gold watching the Oscars this week, then you’ll find plenty more to tickle your funny bone at venues around Exeter, as the Laugh Out Loud festival bows out with a final big belly laugh.
Tonight, I will be downing tools, turning off my phone, and commandeering the sofa, remote and wine from 9pm – 11pm as not one, but two, fantastic TV shows arrive on the small screen.
First up, at 9pm on BBC1 is The Replacement, a three-part thriller.
Our Head Ed, Hero was lucky enough to go to a preview screening of the first episode and, reports that it is edge-of-your seat stuff.
Seven days until the next Muddy Guide. Here’s seven things happening around Devon to help get you through.
Lord of the Dance, Plymouth Pavilions, Thurs 23 – Sun 26 Feb
The West End, Broadway, Europe, the Southern Hemisphere and now Plymouth. It’s been twenty years since Michael Flatley debuted Lord of the Dance and now a new cast are bringing their phenomenal feet to Devon as part of a spine tingly 23 city UK tour, directed by the big man.
How are we doing? Whether you’re running for the hills, in the opposite direction to the kids, desperate for a night out, or scraping the bottom of the half-term barrel, there’s bound to be something in here to cheer you up. So up off the sofa, woolly hats on and out we go!
Last chance to see Mamma Mia, Theatre Royal, Plymouth, until Sat 25 Feb
Looking for a few feel-good hours with, or without the family?
Batten down the hatches, the kids are out of school and back within your clutches. This week’s guide is all about survival. Enjoy x
Busted, Plymouth Pavillions, Fri 10 Feb
School’s out and Busted are back, with an all-new grown up look and sound, although I’m pleased to see that Charlie’s eyebrows are still desperately trying to be the fourth member of the band. The two-time Brit Award-winning trio say they reunited in the studio almost by accident, but it was a happy one because now they have a new album and a UK Headline tour.
Devon knows that half-term is just around the corner (I know, already?!), so this week you’re being treated to a smorgasbord of grown-up fun, before it arrives and sucks you into a giant, sticky vortex of soft play. Enjoy! x
Jay Raynor: The Ten (food) Commandments, Ivybridge Watermark Theatre, Fri 3 Feb
The award-winning restaurant critic and Masterchef judge has turned into a culinary Moses as he attempts to lead us to the edible promised land.
My head hit the table today at speed when I realised that V-day is creeping up on us like a red velvet-caped assassin. For crying out loud, just as we’ve got Christmas done and dusted, now the pressure is on to roll out a massive show of affection for our loved ones. I’ll tell you what, this year shall we make a pact not to go too over the top on the roses and dodgy poetry and, instead treat the day as a chance to simply enjoy doing something a bit different to the mundane and ordinary?
