The weekend is fast approaching and for those still deciding how to spend their Friday through to Sunday, we pick 5 of the best ways to spend your weekend in Devon

In The Willows at Exeter Northcott Theatre – February 22 – March 2

A brand new version of Kenneth Grahame’s delightful children’s story The Wind in the Willows is being co-produced by Exeter Northcott and Metta Theatre, giving Toad, Ratty, Mole, Badger and their Riverbank friends an up-to-date hip-hop vibe.

The 15-week tour opens in Exeter and stars Clive Rowe, from TV’s The Story of Tracey Beaker, as Mr Badger.

February Fossil Festival at Torquay’s Dinosaur World – February 16 – 24

Archaeology and palaeontology are at the heart of this fantastic event on the English Riviera. Included in your price of admission is the chance to excavate some fossils, join a special workshop or have your photo taken with your head in the jaws of a fossilised T-Rex.

Tickets are £5.95 per person.

VIP February Half Term at Pennywell Farm – February 16 – 24

Buy one entry ticket for half term and you’ll receive a VIP pass to return as many times as you’d like during the dates above. After cuddling a miniature pig or pampering a pony you’re bound to want to come back for more than one visit.

Tickets are £14.95 for adults and £12.95 for children.

Half Term at World of Country Life, Exmouth – February 16 – 24

Following their winter break this popular farmyard attraction is back open in time for the February half term. As well as their comprehensive programme of activities, their play areas, museums and food barn will be open as normal.

Tickets can be booked through the link above.

Muddy Mutts Walk at River Dart Country Park – February 24

This is the West Country’s only muddy dog challenge where you and your pooch will be able to take on a number of different obstacles around this beautiful country park. The event is in support of the Animals in Distress Rescue Centre in Ipplepen.

Further info on times and ticketing can be found in the above link.
