Let’s all hide out in Exeter’s Haldon Forest Park and wait for it all to blow over, as a pub-based zombie apocalypse unfolds in Edgar Wright’s wildly funny rom-zom-com. Shaun’s life is going nowhere; a dead-end job, challenging flatmates and an unhappy girlfriend see him struggling with the day-to-day, that is until a horrifying virus turns the population into ravenous, brain-dead zombies and forces him to step up and fight for the future. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost shine, and laughs, gore and thrills are aplenty in this modern Brit classic.

Twice a year the South Devon Railway celebrate with a feast of steam and diesel trains – and their famous beer and cider festival. Trains will be running all day with departures from each end of the line (Buckfastleigh and Totnes) at frequent intervals throughout the day. At Buckfastleigh, the London Transport Routemaster bus runs trips to Buckfast Abbey and along to Ashburton, the garden railway and all the usual attractions, from the museum to the gardens and gift shop, will be open. At Staverton the beer and cider festival will be in full swing from approximately 11am until late offering a great selection of different ales, craft beers and ciders to enjoy from Devon Diesel Society’s award-winning bar. The Staverton Buffet Coach opens to serve a variety of hot & cold snacks, teas, coffees and soft drinks. Sunday evening is usually quiz night – a just for fun general knowledge quiz.

Teign Maritime Shanty Festival

The 2019 festival was a huge success, filling the towns of Teignmouth and Shaldon with crowds of supporters, raising the profile of Shanties and the River Teign community, as well as raising £2,000 for charity. Sea shanties were essentially work songs, set to a rhythm for working, to reduce the monotony of undertaking repetitive tasks aboard ship. But they were also Foc’sle songs, which were storytelling verses to be listened to at leisure, to remind sailors of home and these helped to keep alive traditions and record local events and people. In the Teign estuary area we are blessed to have talented songwriters such as Bob Freshwater, who painstakingly research historical records and craft their own recording of such events and so keep them alive for future generations. This year there will be around 40 sets of shanty singing groups attending – up from 27 last year, coming from all over the UK as well as overseas. One of the shanty groups attending, The “Longest Johns”, were featured in Gareth Malone’s television program “The Choir” and also performing are Teignmouth’s very own Sea Shanty singing group, the Back Beach Boyz.
