Enjoy a caper and find out about more than just wallpaper as Ilfracombe’s All Things Morris festival returns next weekend...

With Ilfracombe’s All Things Morris festival coming up from Friday to Sunday, July 10-12, there is still time to join two very different events.

On Friday, July 10, at Ilfracombe Museum, enjoy ‘William Morris, not just that wallpaper guy’, a talk on the works of the famous artists by lecturer Antigone Neaum. It starts at 7pm and tickets are available from 01271 863541 or 863001.

All Things Morris does what it says on the tin and there will be dancers around town all weekend.

If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em, and The Great Caper professional morris dancing trainers will be holding two free workshops on the Saturday and Sunday at 10am.

You may also want to watch:

All are welcome, with a minimum age of eight. To register, just call 01271 863001 or email

Don’t miss Saturday’s Street Food Festival on the seafront too, as well as a gathering of vintage Morris vehicles on the Sunday.
