Guided photography walk

Come along on a guided walk around Woolacombe with photographer and National Trust volunteer Mark Johnson on Saturday (May 4).

The walks are aimed at beginners and keen enthusiasts looking to take better landscape photographs with their mobile phone or camera. Please bring your own phone or camera with you.

£3 per person, booking essential through the National Trust website.

The Government Inspector

Dubious political deals, mishandled money, bribery, political panic - sounds familiar?

Shifting Sands Theatre presents a comedy at The Plough Arts Centre on Friday, May 3 that seems just as relevant today.

The Government Inspector, written in 1835 by Gogol, is a hilarious satire about corruption in a world where, increasingly desperate to hide their wrongdoings and keep the supposed Government Inspector happy, everyone loses their moral compass.

Bee Trail

Take a gentle stroll around the garden and pleasure grounds and find out more about the bees we're encouraging at Arlington Court, including their favourite plants to pollinate.

Pick up a trail sheet anytime from reception on Monday (May 6) between 10.30am-4pm.

The walk is free but admission charges apply.

Classic Cinema Club

The viewing of Princess Mononoke has been confirmed at Barnstaple Cinema on Sunday (May 5).
