Our Next EventThursday 26th September
Join Tavistock Town Guide Simon Dell on one of his popular Tavistock Curiosities strolls. We will meet at 7.00 pm outside of the Town Museum at Court Gate. Simon is doing this walk to raise funds for the Tavistock Lions Club charity so you just pay your £5 fee to our representative.
The Curiosities walk will look at all those little oddities in town which you might have walked past but failed to look at, such as the Monk who keeps an eye on the cashpoint machine and the ghostly lane that is now buried as well as the row of cottages that you can not see.
This is a gentle walk mainly on the flat and follows the footsteps of Queen Catherine of Aragon – and which street is named after a Member of Parliament who never visited Tavistock??
Simon will again bring the history of our town to life, all for a good charitable cause, in a walk which is usually about an hour and a half – unless you also want to see our claim to fame being associated with the Marconi telegraph cable to America?!
Tavistock’s curious history is an enlightening look at a town you thought you knew well!

Our next BBQ will be for the Tavi Specials!

Fireworks 2019
