What’s On This Weekend

FRI 2 - SUN 4 NOV 2018

Special thanks to our roving photographer, the very talented Imi F Hughes Photography. See more of her work over on her Instagram feed @imi.f.hughesphotography.


Exhibition: Plate Up, Devon Guild of Craftsmen, runs until Sun 4 November

A new exhibition with a foodie theme (a bit like this month’s guide!), Plated Up is co-curated by two star Michelin chef Michael Wignall (formerly of Gidleigh Park),  showcasing artisans who use contemporary craft to present food. If you fancy it, get yourself along to the launch party at Bovey’s lovely crafts hub on Fri 14th and toast the man himself! Details at the link below.


Still Alice, Theatre Royal, Plymouth, Tues 30 October – Sat 3 November

Ooh, I love Sharon Small and apparently in this play, she’s ‘spellbinding’. Alice Howland is stubborn, clever and driven – a professional at the top of her game. But, diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s at the age of 50, she is compelled to confront her new reality and draw on her resilience to remain independent for as long as possible. Alice strives to remain true to the woman she has always been, while relationships shift within her family, in her work and most importantly with herself. Uncompromising yet tender, this new adaptation of the award-winning novel truthfully acknowledges life with a progressive disease – its conflicts and burden, and its small, priceless victories.


Artisan Market, Barnstaple Pannier Market, Sun 4 Nov

Celebrating all things handmade, this bumper artisan market will showcase over 90 artists and makers from across the South West, from jewellery to ceramics, wood to photography and food.  Lots of it! Go and show your support for all our local talent.

10am – 4pm. £1.50 entry fee on the door (under 16s FREE).


Bonfire Night at Paschoe House, Bow nr Crediton, Sun 4 Nov


Photography: Imi F Hughes

The gorgeous country house hotel just outside Crediton is celebrating Guy Fawkes in true Paschoe style once again this year. You can book a table for an early dinner from 5pm, then move to the South Terrace to see the ‘wow’ bits. Don’t fancy dinner? Just come along and check out the hot food, mulled wine and cider and treats on offer outside, before the big bonfire and display. There’s time for a sneaky nightcap in the library bar before heading off, too.  Sold!

Entrance to display £2. Bring cash tokens to purchase from the stalls.


Good Food and Craft Market at the Melville Building, Royal William Yard, Plymouth

This month sees the fab, award-winning food and craft market move into its new home indoors, where it will remain for the winter months – huzzah! You know what this means, too; it signals the start of the festive season at the Royal William Yard, with lots of exciting events in the pipeline this year.  Market traders will be located outside the Melville Building and in the Melville courtyard. Arts and crafts stalls will also be inside on the ground floor, so there’s plenty to browse and buy.

10am – 3pm.
