What’s On in August


Have fun and, if there’s something you think should be on here, get in touch: x



The Power of Three Exhibition, Artizan Gallery, Torquay, Tues 1 – Tues 29 August

Artwork by Alan Gregory

April Storm Approaching: Alan Gregory

This August sees a brand new exhibition at Torquay’s Artizan Gallery: The Power of Three, a curation of paintings by three Teignbridge-based artists.  Alan Gregory, Claire Jenkinson and Chris Pitman each deliver their take on the landscapes, making for a visual feast.


Broomhill National Sculpture Prize, Broomhill Sculpture Gardens, Nr Barnstaple

Go for a walk in the gardens here and you never know what you’re going to find next. This incredible-looking venue is now the location of this year’s National Sculpture Prize finalists.  Broomhill Art Hotel, near Barnstaple features a sculpture garden and looks a pretty awesome place to go for tea, too. Loving the concept.



Unique Boutique Mid-Week Handmade Market, Exeter Guildhall, Wed 30 Aug 

It’s well worth planning your shopping sesh in Exeter around these new fortnightly markets, that take place in and around St Pancras Church.  Featuring handmade crafts from artists and makers in Devon and around the south west, I hear it’s a lovely vibe and a great way to snap up a quirky piece or two.


NT Live: Yerma, The Flavel, Dartmouth, Thurs 31 August

billie piper on stage in yerma

Another stonking production from the NT Live series.  This time, Billie Piper returns in her Evening Standard and Olivier Best Actress Award-winning role, in Yerma.  Piper plays a thirty-something woman in contemporary London, who’s so desperate to conceive that she’s led to the unthinkable in a shocking climax.  Powerful stuff, the critics say.

    Great to see what’s on in Devon…. shame it’s so top heavy with South Devon entries…

      Hi Wendy, I’ll take that on board. It’s certainly not intentional – the rest of Devon has plenty to shout about. Thanks for reading, Sharon x

    Oooh you missed the Rolex Fastnet Yacht Race in Plymouth, racers arrive from wednesday 9th August in the Barbican Plymouth, then straight after the fireworks on 11th-13th August there’s the Jazz and Blues Festival in Plymouth on the Barbican. A brilliant week 👌

      You got me! My word, I missed a few classics here (blaming Summer Hols brain…it’s a ‘thing’, honest!), but thanks for passing the info on. It really is a busy week for Plymouth, isn’t it? Exciting x
