Superheroes Party

If so, they might want to join forces on Thursday July 7 and come dressed up in their shiniest costumes for a “bring your own” picnic for pre-schoolers at the Marquee and enjoy the hilarity provided by Kiddies’ Entertainer, Hat McKool.

And there’s nothing wrong with a 5′ 8″ forty-year-old dressed as Wonder-woman, so secret parent superheroes, don’t be afraid to don a cape either! Wear your costumes and join in the laughter from 1pm to 3pm! You can find all the details by clicking here.

Live At The Chudleigh Apollo

Jackie Juno

We all like a giggle or two… This year we are once again hosting our own laughter and comedy evening in the marquee, but this year it’s comedy of an alternative nature. We are excited to introduce three very funny and original comedians to the stage under the watchful eye (but not where diets are concerned, she tells me) of Jackie Juno, writer painter, singer, comedienne, celebrant and Grand Bard of Exeter.

This is a ticket event, £8 for a 7pm start, click here for full details.

Brochures Away!

Tom and brochuresThe brochures have been printed; we’ve collected them; stuffed the flyers in them (thanks, team); and Tom has loaded them into his car. In fact, the first few are being delivered as I type. (If you hear something coming through your letterbox as you read this, it could well be your copy.)

And if you prefer your information electronically, you can find a link to the full brochure on the Summer Festival page.

Countdown 2

These lists will appear at appropriate events and here on the website after 13th July.
