Upcoming events in North Devon

Here are some of the highlights of events happening locally to help you plan your trip... 

For many, a holiday to Barnstaple is their chance to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life. Stepping out of their routine, they'll love the relaxed, slower pace of life that North Devon offers and return from their break feeling rejuvenated. However, for some of our guests, North Devon's jam-packed calendar of events means that they can have a full itinerary of fun things to see and do.

From nights at the theatre to a day out wandering around the gardens, there are lots of things that you can dive into on your trip. Take a look at what's happening over the next couple of months and see what you could get up to on your next North Devon break.

Before travelling please check these attractions are open and that you are comfortable with their COVID-19 procedures before visiting.  Pre-booking is often now essential.
