Event Details

???????? Join us in Tavistock town centre on Saturday 6th May as we come together as a community to celebrate the King’s Coronation ????????
❤️ We’ve pulled out all the stops to mark this tremendous achievement with a magnificent, delightfully nostalgic, fun-packed day for all the family.

✨ Perhaps you might like to have a go at Swing Dancing – Mad About Swing will be on hand to lead you gently through the dance-steps as you glide across the cobbles to the sounds of a bygone age.

✨ You’ll be able to help yourself to the grindage from our street food stalls, and our Pimms bar too. Or if you prefer, indulge in a traditional cream-tea. Whatever your preference, be sure to razz your berries in a ringside seat. You might even shed the odd sentimental tear as you hug your loved ones close.
✨ You’ll find lots to do in the fun Kids Zone. Watch as tiny (and maybe not so tiny) faces light up with delight at our traditional Punch & Judy Show. Beloved by generations, this show is for the whole family and features the hilarious antics of Mr Punch and his long-suffering wife Judy! The amazing Rainbow Gecko will also be there to wow its tiny audience with a magical bubble-show and face-painting. Mary Tavy School will start the afternoon off dancing around the May Pole.
Finish the day off tapping to 70’s band Red Code with a beer or Pimms in hand! Street Food & Music Festival runs 17:00 – 20:00.


(Saturday) 11:00 pm - 8:00 pm(GMT+01:00)
