Kingsbridge 800

This year Kingsbridge will be celebrating 800 years of continuous trading in the town! In 1219, the Abbot of Buckfast granted Kingsbridge the right to hold a market and so the town was created. He recognised that the tidal waters of the estuary, as well as Kingsbridge’s central position in South Devon, would improve the transport of goods from the producers to the customers. To this day Kingsbridge proudly supports independent retailers and champions locally sourced produce. On Saturday 14th September, the town will celebrate by holding a market on the Town Square with stallholders selling, honey, jams and chutneys, jewellery and showcasing traditional crafts such as woodturning and spinning. There will be a historic carousel, medieval musicians and an 'Imaginarium' in a circus tent on the Town Square. In the Market Hall, there will be a Bayeaux tapestry for children to complete, and a storyteller. Stroll further up the town, stopping to browse the shops, and find talks on the history of the town and a display of birds of prey in the gardens of the Cookworthy Museum. Later on in the day there will be padddleboard jousting, a medieval banquet and the opportunity to put some local celebrities in the stocks! At 6.30pm in the Market Hall, there will be a Medieval Banquet, sponsored by 'Twenty Seven by Jamie Rogers'. Your ticket will include three courses and a welcome drink accompanied by medieval music. Tickets are £18 per person and available to purchase from the Kingsbridge Information Centre.
