Lynton/Lynmouth Cliff Railway is living history ?take a ride, see the film & hear the talk

by Admin31. March 2016 10:00

Lynton to Lynmouth Cliff Railway is worth visiting at any time of year, watch the train-like carriages go up and down, powered by a natural water source, and then enjoy the ride. But on Tuesday 5th April it will be even better – there is a free event at the Lynmouth Pavilion (at the bottom end of the railway) where you can meet the Managing Engineer of the Lynton & Lynmouth Cliff Railway, see a short film, enjoy a slideshow and take a tour from the top of the Lime Kilns. He's happy to take all your weird and wonderful questions...start thinking now!

Make your own enchanted garden, plant a gobstopper tomato or even give a gnome a home

by Admin30. March 2016 12:29

It’s Little Digger Spring Week from 4th – 8th April at Ashford Garden Centre near Barnstaple. They have been really creative and come up with some fantastic activities. You can create your own mini enchanted garden, or decorate a gnome and take him home. Decorate your pot and plant marker, then plant your own gobstopper tomato to take home too and nurture it into a productive plant. I think the one I want to book a place on, is Sweet Tweets – make a chocolate nest and fill it with wiggly jelly worms and yummy eggs!

For one night only in North Devon, join the 60s stars in a Sensational 60s Experience

by Admin29. March 2016 12:29

Do the names Herman’s Hermits, Chris Farlowe, Steve Ellis, Union Gapuk and New Amen Corner mean anything to you? If they do then The Sensational 60’s Experience is the show for you. It is on at The Queen’s Theatre in Barnstaple on Saturday 2nd April. The show is hosted by Alan Mosca from Freddie and the Dreamers and he will join the other five with an explosive trip down memory lane (or if you don’t remember them first time round there is still time to become a fan!). Do you still have the clothes you wore to their gigs in the 60’s (and can you still fit in them?)

There are several ways to meet a T-Rex in North Devon, here are a couple for you to try!

by Admin28. March 2016 12:29

(1) Go to Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park. Here you can meet all sorts of animals and marvel as the Dinosaurs move and roar. They also have a gigantic indoor play area – the Dinosaurus Playzone where you can have dinomite fun!

 

(2) Go to The Landmark Theatre in Ilfracombe on 7th and 8th April for Dinosaur Zoo. They are introducing a Tyrannosaurus Rex  to the stage in their show Meet The T-Rex. There are cute cuddly baby ones and teeth gnashing giants in this dinosaursome live show. Suitable for all the family.

You?ve found the bunnies, eggs, treasure and garden trail, now find the Easter Chicks!

by Admin27. March 2016 13:32

Another one for children – drag your parents along to Clovelly (they will probably be willing as its such a special village to visit!). Receive your map as you enter, and then search for the Easter chicks in the High Street and Quay. Mark their locations on the map. If you can find 10 chicks you get an Easter egg, if you find all 15 you get a bigger prize – I hope its chocolate and if so, can I share it with you?

Hunt for treasure at The Milky Way (& chocolate eggs too!) You may even find Peter Rabbit

by Admin26. March 2016 12:29

 

 

Easter Hunts at the Milky Way are a little bit different – search for the treasure hunt clues, hand in your answer sheet to get an Eggs Galore Scratch card, scratch it and win one of lots of prizes and get a chocolate egg and get entry into the Golden Eggs prize draw! The only problem is, that its only open for children up to 12 and stops at the end of the Easter holidays. Rules me out. Still I can go there on the Easter weekend and see the Easter bunny. (It may even be Peter Rabbit if I go on Easter Sunday.)
