Duck Soup at Barn Cinema

Justly considered one of the greatest film comedies of all time, Duck Soup is filled to bursting with iconic gags from the Marx Brothers We’re delighted that this screening will be introduced by a comedian from the local comedy circuit, Dartmoor’s very own stand-up, Rev. Maggy Whitehouse. From probably the most iconic comedic team in history, this anti-war, anti-nationalist satire (made soon after Hitler seized power in Germany) is an incredible showcase of their craft, meticulously honed on the vaudeville circuit. Ostensibly about Rufus T. Firefly (Groucho Marx) waging war with a neighbouring country over a trifling matter, the film’s unruly spirit tramples over any attempt at narrative or logic, zig-zagging in a thousand preposterous directions all of which serve to make you laugh very hard.

Totnes Friday Indoor Collectors Market

The Indoor Collectors Market is part of the Friday Flea Market and takes place on the 3rd Friday of the month. The flea market itself runs every Friday but the more specific collectors market takes place on the one day a month upstairs at the Totnes Masonic Hall. Entry is free and unlike its downstairs relation the collectors fair is always in the dry and warm. The market opens at 7.30 in the morning and finishes at 2pm.
