SHAF – South Hams Arts Trail

Event Date:

From 12th October

Until 27th October


As diverse as the artistic talents of SHAF members are the ways in which SHAF artists work and where they choose to exhibit their work. Some artists work on their kitchen tables, others in purpose-built studios; some work alone, others in an artists’ collective.

So visitors to SHAF Arts Trail venues will find some artists exhibiting in their homes and studios, others in galleries, exhibition halls, and even pubs! Following the Arts Trail also provides a wonderful opportunity to explore the glorious South Hams and discover places (including cream tea venues) you never knew existed.

We will discover what the season has to offer and pick some wild plants to take back to our sheltered outdoor kitchen for a fun cook up. We’ll talk about which ones we can eat and will take the ones we need back to the woodland kitchen for a cook-up and simple wild food lunch.

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.
