Crabs, eaten in all the very best London restaurants!
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?
'My Brother is an only Child' tonight!
Winner of 5 Donatello awards, My
Brother Is An Onlky Child is our film for Thursday 27th
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

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. For more
