Ilfracombe Round Table are organizing their Birdman competition on Ilfracombe Pier on Sunday, August 3 from 11am.An added attraction for the crowds this year will be a Team Strongman competition with no weight limits There will also be live music all featuring the best of the local bands including The Chillis, Harry Munk Project, Crystal Arcade, The Tabloid Press, Hip Route, Chris Millington, Falling Apart and The Yum Yums. The main event remains the Birdman competition itself. This involves would-be "aviators" flinging themselves from the jumping platform into the sea. With the addition of a big screen, which will show The Strongman & Birdman competition in real time, the best viewing for all events will be on the pier itself.There is something for all the family to do with fair rides, a free children's entertainer, free face painting, a bungee run, climbing wall, trampolines and a bar area and barbecu.Tickets for a whole day's entertainment cost £6 for adults and £3 for children. A family ticket for two adults and two children costs £15. A couple of spaces are still available for jumpers and anyone interested in the event should phone Mark Pearce on 01271 883502 or visit the website at www.ilfracomberoundtable.co.uk Profits from the event go to support local charities and other worthy causes in the area.
