1.     Food Festival Party

Sponsored by many, this food festival event is going to be "the" party talked about for some time.  Featuring themed food from 16 different restaurants, and house wines to vintage Champagne, there is something for everyone.  This fun evening is a great opportunity to meet all your friends and if you are on holiday to meet real local people!  Dartmouth dot TV will be there eating, drinking and photographing.

2.     Browns Music Evening



Last Saturday evening from 8-11pm, Singer/songwriter Mark Ely totally captivated a full house in Browns Bar, if you didn't go, be sure to try the next one, we all had a really great time!  And Peter/Linda, come before the music finishes next time ?  (Oh yes, we should have taken the Nikon D200 for the photography! )



3.   Coombe Gallery  exhibition

5.    A walk on the wild side ?

Isn't it strange when you live somewhere you often don't do the things you used to ?  This Sunday Dartmouth dot TV decided to take the tourist walk, across Bayards Cove, into the Fort, through the hidden exit and onwards to the Castle via Warfleet Creek.  After a cream tea and a long look at the stunning views, what better way to return than by Ferry?  Try it this weekend, if you have visitors suggest it to them?


6.   Shakespeare Week  only 3 days left

The Inn Theatre Company's open air production of Romeo and Juliet at Dartmouth Castle got off to an excellent start on Tuesday evening, despite final rehearsals having to be held inside St Petrox Church due to bad weather on Monday!

Emily Fricker's charming and romantic Juliet could not fail to fall for handsome and passionate Romeo played by Tom Leeper. Despite (or maybe because of) the interventions of her devoted Nurse (Jane Windsor-Smith) and Friar Lawrence (Max Brandt) the "star-cross'd lovers" meet their tragic end but thus bring together their warring families. The set, on the hillside outside Dartmouth Castle, is perfect for Shakespeare's well-loved play which has performances each evening at 7.45pm until Saturday. Don't miss it! Tickets are available from Dartmouth Tourist Information Centre.
