The North Devon Mini Grand Tour 2009 in Ilfracombe

We were lucky to watch the hundreds of minis drive into Ilfracombe this afternoon on the North Devon Mini Grand Tour 2009 in aid of Children’s Hospice South West. Here are just a few of the cars . . .

Great fun . . . hope to see them all again next year!

Ilfracombe Victorian Celebration programme launched at Jack-in-the-Green celebrations

While Ilfracombe may give the impression that nothing much happens over winter, in reality there’s a lot going on, especially preparation for the year ahead.

This weekend the Landmark Beer Festival is in full swing and on Monday 4th May, the Jack-in-the-Green celebration takes place with children dancing round the Maypole, morris dancing, music and, of course, Jack-in-the-Green himself welcoming summer.

In addition, Ilfracombe Victorian Celebration launches its 24-page colour 2009 programme packed with over 50 Victorian-themed events from 6th to 14th June 2009. Committee members in Victorian dress will be distributing copies and they will also be available through local outlets in the run-up to and during the week-long celebration.

You can download a PDF version of the programme (2.8 Mb) or view details of all events on the online events diary at the Ilfracombe Victorian Celebration web site.
