Event Date:

3rd October


The Tale tells of the adventures of Brutus of Troy and his Trojan people, sailing to Britain, befriending the Lady of the Leechwell by battling with the giant Gog-ma-Gog, and then founding the town of Totnes. Warmheart Community Projects, in the form of a team of local artists and educators, have been working with Year 4/5 children at St John’s and The Grove primary schools, learning the legend of Brutus, singing songs, making music, stamping clay medallions, creating dances, learning about metamorphosis in nature and making costumes using the Batik method – all in preparation for the grand procession on Sunday 3rd October.

Start Time 2pm – The event starts from the Play Galleon at Steamer Quay, Totnes and goes up the High Street, across the Market Square with a finale at the Leechwell Gardens around 4 – 4.30pm.

There is also a free Making Day at the Civic Hall on Saturday 25th September 10 – 4pm at which anyone who wants to join the procession can make headdresses, hats or props to use on the day.

Special thanks go to Totnes Town Council, South Hams District Council, Devon County Council , The Arts Council and the Elmgrant Trust, for their generous grants and support.
