1.    A Collection Cruise Ships

Dartmouth has certainly had a good week of ship visits, starting with Polar Star last Wednesday, the Andrea on Sunday, followed by the massive Royal Princess on Monday and finally the Endeavour on Tuesday. With perfect spring weather we are sure the visitors and crew from the ships enjoyed their time in our town and spent loads of money in our shops!

We believe the Andrea is returning to Dartmouth on Sunday/Monday watch out for her and be sure to give her passengers a warm welcome whatever the weather.


2.    Mayor Making

On Monday Councillor Debbie Morris was formally elected Mayor and Chairman of Dartmouth Town Council for the ensuing year, with Councillor Richard Rendle M.B.E. as her Deputy. Debbie takes over from Councillor Iris Pritchard who has held the office for the last two years. In thanking her fellow councillors for electing her she said she was looking forward to guiding them well through the challenges facing the town. Tributes were paid to the outgoing Mayor for her hard work during the past two years.


3.    Chrome Classics visit

A whole bunch of classic chrome cruisers came to visit Dartmouth this Sunday.  What better place to spend a lazy Saturday or Sunday.

4.     Music Festival

Friday - Saturday - Sunday will see so much music in Dartmouth, everywhere you go there will be music of some sort.  Browns Hotel as a fantastic line up click here to see what they are doing.   The Royal Castle Hotel has a stream of musicians as will Wildfire at the Marina. The Windjammer pub will have Andy on the door and good music inside.  We counted over 110 performances  in the Official Programme available at the Tourist Information Office in Mayors Avenue Car Park. 

The whole town will be buzzing, the Market Square, Royal Avenue Gardens, Bandstand, the streets, Bayards Fort, The Castle, everywhere.  If you try hard you may get to see a quarter of what is available.  So book next year too?

If you are coming for the day, we recommend you use the Park & Ride at the top of the hill.
