1.    Browns opens!

Browns opened to a cracking start last Friday with local celebrities and the sort of interior decoration you only see in expensive magazines.  The bar is made out of pewter,  so cool it almost frosts over as you look at it!  Visit their website by clicking here.

2.    Glass Blowing

Nick from Blown in Dartmouth reports: The one day course is designed to introduce people to the amazing properties of Hot Glass. The emphasis will be on a one to one tuition basis and no previous experience is required, just enthusiasm!

In the course of the day we will work in teams of two taking turns to be the gaffer and first assistant - you will quickly learn enough of the basics so that you can create your first piece of Art Glass whether it be Blown, Sandcast or freeform fabricated.  Any masterpieces that you make during the course of the day are yours to take home but you will have wait until the piece is annealed (cooled down) which can take 24hrs.

The courses will take place on a Friday, so a long weekend in the picturesque town of Dartmouth could be an option!  Find out more by clicking here.

3.    Flight of the Falcon

Ever thought of owning your own bird of prey? No, we haven't either!  But you can still experience the ancient sporting art of falconry and hawking by booking an introductory day's course (two to six persons) to learn the  basics through the Royal Castle Hotel in Dartmouth.

On the last Saturday of each month, all year round, David Scott (with the aid of a Harris Hawk!) will begin the day with an informative talk in the Hotel's Library on the history of falconry and how to keep and train a bird of prey. After a short break for a hearty rustic lunch you will then have  the opportunity to fly a Harris Hawk from your fist at a nearby farm.  Experience the birds' power on take off and the lightest of landings on  return, feel the birds' legendary grip whilst being protected by a falconer's glove.

Why not treat someone with a surprise gift voucher? Make it part of your  special long weekend break. Call reception on 01803 833033 for full  details.

4.  Easter is coming!!

Every year there is an Easter Egg hunt in Foss Street, great fun for children and a great excuse to shop in one of the very many specialist shops we have in Dartmouth.  Check out our shops by clicking here , and view our famous art galleries by clicking here.
