Clovelly Maritime Festival in aid of the N. Devon Hospice.

July 16, 2017

The day will be full of fun and packed with a programme of all sorts of activities and entertainment for all ages.

The 'Clovelly Gun Run' starts the event from the harbour up the steep cobbled street to Victoria Fountain. Two teams will take it in turn to manhandle this weighty gun. Come along and support the cadets as they try to beat their race time last year.
This year there will be a second Clovelly Cup Race with the North Devon Yacht Club! They will be racing outside the harbour across the bay 11:00-14:00 (if any yachtsmen and women are interested in taking part or being involved, please contact It will be an amazing sight to see, with the boats surrounding the harbour and setting off around the race course. They will also be joining us in the harbour with information on their club and how to become a sea cadet.

Throughout the day there will be music, street entertainment, activities and games for the whole family, including building your own miniature boats with The Plough, Arts & Crafts and The National Trust, Mermaid storytelling ‘Tales from the sea’, Shipwreck Survival, Punch & Judy, Beach Spa, plus face painting & henna tattoos and a variety of stalls selling food and event-themed arts & crafts. It is definitely a day to remember!

Free entry for under 16’s who come in maritime-themed fancy dress costumes! Standard admission charges include all entertainment.
