1.   Dartmouth News

We had about a dozen individuals who want Dartmouth News to continue, you know who you are, thanks guys!

Without significant funding we will need to cut back substantially, this is a shame as we do so much to publicise Dartmouth.  For instance Dartmouth is featured in a full page spread in this months Devon Life, with two big colour pictures.  Salcombe by contrast has 1/2 a page only and no photographs at all!  Why did Dartmouth do so well?  because Dartmouth News supplied the photographs of course!  One is shown here.

Our call for help has fallen on deaf ears, we had assumed the tourist industry would have fallen over themselves to help us?

2.    'My Brother is an only Child'  tonight!

Winner of 5 Donatello awards, My Brother Is An Onlky Child is our film for Thursday 27th November.

A story of 2 brothers torn apart by their opposing political views and their shared love for the same woman. The tensions and affections of this desperate working class family are portrayed by all with genuine emotion. The dialogue is witty and charming and not unlike other memorable Italian films (Il Postino, Cinema Paradiso). My Brother Is an Only Child shows the tremendous energy of which contemporary Italian movies are capable.

Guest tickets available from The Windjammer 7.30-7.55 £3.50.  Our bar at The Guildhall opens at 7.30 - the film to be shown at 8pm approx

6.  Candlelit

Why  As the Candlelit Dartmouth event gets nearer it seems that the procession is going to be much bigger than last year. The local schools have been so industrious making lanterns that it is expected that 100 lanterns will be carried through the town, some shaped as angels, Christmas trees, candles and even a huge star.

The procession starts on Friday 12th December at 6pm and processes through the town. The Blackawton Morris Men and fairy stilt walkers will lead the parade and distributing sweets and details of offers in the shops will be faeries dressed by Ethera. Many of Dartmouths interesting shops will be putting on special offers over the event to make your visit even more tempting. The offers include a free gift if you spend over £20 in The Dartmouth Ice Cream Company, A lucky dip discount of between 5% and 20% in Baxters Gallery and 10% off at Juste Moi. There are many more to come so wrap up warm, grab a glass of mulled wine and have a fabulous time. There’s plenty to do over the weekend including the party with Sax Appeal on Saturday night.
