The theme this year is Silverton Sands Beach Party and everyone is invited! Street Market has always been a village event and it is the village and its outlying neighbours that make it such a warm and wonderful day. The Theme is a way of creating a uniquely different atmosphere every year, but we need people to take on activities to help achieve this atmosphere. Could you and your family run a ‘pin the tail on the donkey game’? Could you organise a ‘best beach hat competition’? Have you got any ideas for ‘message in a bottle’ ?? Any and all ideas are really welcome . All funds will support your chosen local group.
In terms of the day’s programme a lot has already been achieved and stalls are booking up fast on our fantastic new interactive web site: food stalls like Devon Dogs, Pink Cloud Crepes, Pizza, Grillers in the Mist, Ginger Pig Company along with the thirst quenching ‘Prosecco and Pimms Bar’ who by popular demand are going to include more gin and cocktails this summer. The Exe Valley Brewery are working on this year’s celebratory brew unanimously named ‘Exe on the Beach’. This is due to be launched at the beginning of July.
There is an exciting programme of entertainment planned with old favourites like Punch and Judy, face painting, Dan the Hat. Also theme specific activities like a limbo or volleyball competition, a giant deckchair, treasure hunt around the village…A competition to design the front cover for the programme by local children is already underway.
The day will end with the traditional tug of War on The Little Rec at its usual time of 4.30. The evening event which starts at 7pm is really taking shape with ‘Reckless’ and Lazy Snacks booked, along with a Hog Roast and in house bar. Tickets prices are being held at £7.50.
Street Market meets once a month at 8pm in The Lamb Inn. Please come along and share your ideas. The next meeting is on Wednesday the 24th of April.
This year, make Silverton Beach Party Your Beach Party.
