What’s on this week

MON 24 - SUN 30 JULY 2017

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


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.

Exmouth: 50 Things Friday: Fun on the Farm, Fri 28 July

Dartington Summer School & Festival, Sat 29 July

Check out this summer’s packed schedule of concerts and events, celebrating Dartington’s long history as a hub for literature, arts and culture.  With up to three performances a night, you can fill your summer with world-class performances in stunning surroundings.

Rockfish Crab Party, Dartmouth, Sun 30 July

Hosted by owner Mitch Tonks and Angela Hartnett, fresh crab is obviously at the heart of this fun festival, served with music and a dollop of Dartmouth loveliness on the side.
