All the toffees I chewed... an evening with Pam Eyers in Barnstable at the Queens Theatre

Oh, I wish I’d looked after me teeth;
and spotted the dangers beneath.
All the toffees I chewed... an evening with Pam Eyers in Barnstable

Pam Eyers in Barnstable

I have never forgotten the first time I heard Pam Eyers on the radio reciting a humorous poem in her distinctive voice. I can’t wait to hear her live at the Queens Theatre on 6th April. Her work is funny, and approachable.  It sounds simple, as though dashed off, but this is deceptive.  Her hair-trigger timing, her eye for the detail of everyday life, and for the absurdity therein, makes for an art that hides art. “Yes, I’ll marry you, my dear. And here’s the reason why.” Find out on Pam’s website. Enjoy!

The Big Sheep Grand National North Devon

Are you backing Red Ram, Woolly Jumper or Little Pullover to win the 2014 Practical Cup? What am I baa-ing on about – the Big Sheep Grand National of course!

The Gruffalo live stage show

Join Mouse on a daring adventure through the deep dark wood as he meets a wheeler-dealer Fox, an eccentric old Owl and a maraca-shaking, party mad Snake, and outwits them all with tall stories of the terrifying Gruffalo. Armed with only a nut map and a little courage Mouse must make sure he doesn’t end up as dinner for these wily woodland creatures! But what happens when he comes face to face with the very creature he imagined…? The Gruffalo live stage show at The Eden Project from 29 April – 1st May may have the answers. There are also lots more Gruffalo themed event taking place there.

The Shop of little Horrors is not a show for children, Go see Splosh if it is splashy, splashy fun you want. Both at a theatre in North Devon

Splosh interactive play

Splosh is an interactive play suitable for under 5’s - Pull up a bath mat and join Little Lost Duck, Syd the Sponge and the rest of the Bathtub Gang for the bubbliest birthday party anyone has ever thrown, ever! Enjoy the dance music and puppetry. Puppets feature in the Shop of Little Horrors too, but you need to be 12+ to enjoy it. This dark and twisted show has a wicked sense of humour, and features a macabre collection of characters - using extraordinary puppets, masks and props. Find out more on both shows at

Visit the Big Wild World, dessert, Savannah, Tropics, Forest, wetlands ? and the baby giraffe - all in Paignton Zoo

by Admin25. March 2014 09:00

Paignton Zoo

Did you know baby giraffes are 6 feet tall when they are born and can stand within a few hours? The baby female Rothschild giraffe that was born at the end of January does not yet have a name. She’s all neck and legs. I am confident she is destined for a longer life than Darius in Copenhagen (poor boy). There are indoor areas at the zoo, where the animals from warner climates live; you may just want to move in until summer arrives. Choose your neighbours carefully – a poison dart frog doesn’t sound friendly to me! There are also crocodiles, baboons, big cats, spiders and so much more. Plan to spend a whole day at Paignton Zoo.
