What's happening in June!

June 7 - 9th.

We bring 3 evenings and two days of festivities fun and food for thought! All these events are organised in partnership with Dawlish Town Council.

7th June, in the evening, Whose Wild World?, the world premiere of an active theatre production from Troubadour Theatre company with an environmentally themed promenade performance. 

Kids go free!

June 7th, 6 - 8pm (doors open 5.30pm) in the Marquee on Dawlish Lawn.

Join us to meet the budding presenter of a new TV reality show. Being on location is not going quite as smoothly as our hapless star, Petunia Wilding and her long-suffering assistant, Violet would like and the rehearsal set seems to be attracting a variety of unexpected characters!

 We'll be exploring all sorts of wild stuff and figuring out who will be the wildest of them all. See you there!

Bring your own picnic and enjoy this early evening event in the marquee - 6 - 8pm. Tickets will be available from the Manor House, Dawlish, or WegotTickets and Eventbrite. £10 per adult, includes up to two free entries for children 16 and under. Need help getting tickets? Email us
