Events at Clovelly

December 26, 2016

Join us for our Boxing Day Barbecue on the quay at Clovelly.  With FREE entrance into the village all day, why not have a walk on the estate then come along to the barbecue where there will be live music, mulled wine, and even a treasure hunt if you are up to it.  It should make the perfect follow-up to your Christmas Day.

The barbecue runs from 12:00 to 3 pm.

December 31, 2016 to January 01, 2017

Arrive by sea or by carriage to a warm welcome for Captain Jack Sparrow and the Red Lion staff.  Prepare to be transported back to a time when there were pirates at Clovelly.  Do dress up to add to the fun - prizes for those voted 'best dressed'.

The Innkeeper, bar boy and wenches will be on hand to welcome you into the Red Lion Harbour Bar where there'll be some debauchery and sea shanties!

Lentsherd (pronounced ‘Lanshard’) is an old Clovelly Shrove Tuesday custom, and the aim is to chase bad spirits away and drive the devil into the sea before Lent. At dusk children set off Down-a-long, dragging clattering tin cans, which are then tied together and thrown into the sea (later retrieved). Children taking part will receive a free pancake to decorate with toppings.
