Story Walks, Powderham Castle, Sun 23 – Fri 28 July
All week, join Dartmoor-based storyteller Clive PiG on a stroll around the grounds of Powderham Castle, as he tells tales from his story sack. Clive’s told tales at No. 10 Downing Street, performed poetry at a refugee camp in Jordan and sung songs playing a ukulele and riding a unicycle in Rotterdam. So this should be a, erm, walk in the park.
Stereophonics at Plymouth Pavilions, Tues 25 July
Ahead of a tour of the festival circuit, Stereophonics have announced they’re doing two intimate gigs, one of them in Plymouth – whoop! I love the dulcet tones of Kelly Jones.
Family Arts Afternoon at Hartland Abbey, Wed 26 July
Ok, from here on things turn a little more famleee oriented, like this little event full of wacky arts related activities in bucolic surroundings. Expect a character treasure hunt, willow sculpting, puppetry, fancy dress races, storytelling, drama and more. If the smalls can keep their eyes open, stay on to see the open-air theatre show, Illyria “The Lost World” at 5pm.

As part of the National Trust’s 50 Things Friday, head to Lower Halsdon Farm and join the rangers for bug hunting, snail racing and grass trumpets.
