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

 

Coastal Clean-ups 2020  / 18 - 19 Sept

These FREE events will give you the chance to help the environment and to learn more about local species and the beautiful shores around us. Coastlines around the world suffer with litter brought in by waves and left by beach users.

Torbay has a vital underwater ecosystem; a bed of sea grass which is home to many creatures, all of whom are effected by litter and micro plastics, so join Costal Clean-ups to do your bit to avoid pollution and spread the word about keeping beaches litter free!

THG is reopening with the relaunch of its acclaimed exhibition: ARTIST ROOMS: Richard Long 'Being in the Moment'.

This exhibition brings the work of the renowned British sculptor and land artist, Sir Richard Long, to East Devon. For more than 50 years, Richard Long has been at the forefront of conceptual art working beyond the confines of traditional material and questioning how we view the relationship between landscapes and art.

Circus Berlin / 18 - 20 Sept

Continental Circus Berlin with an amalgamation of brilliant Circus acts, music & real youthful energy, incorporating fantastic performers from all over the world. 

In an age where so much entertainment is unreal, made up of special effects, CGI and has a virtual reality, being pre-recorded, multi-tracked, digitally enhanced or in some other way electronically created - the sheer reality of a live show is a breath of fresh air and the feats and skills seen at Continental Circus Berlin are often so amazing that the Circus-goer literally can not believe their eyes. Book your tickets now!
