Event Postponed

It is with great regret that we have had to postpone this event. It was not an easy decision but as a fund raiser it was important that we had a sufficiently high attendance in order to make a some profit however the numbers were just not making this viable.  Apologies to those who were still looking to book. 

We will be offering a full refund to those who currently have tickets.

To help us raise money for our much needed new roof, please join us and travel back into Combeinteignhead's past! A delicious three course, candle lit, dinner will be served and our star guest, Lady Katherine Raleigh, will regale us with stories about her life and times. 

Appearing in full period costume as Lady Katherine, mother to Sir Walter Raleigh, speaker and award-winning author Rosemary Griggs will bring Tudor Devon to life in a lively presentation interspersed with songs from the peasant David.

While our entertainers will be in full Tudor costume,  The dress code is smart casual unless you happen have some doublet and hose you are dying to wear.

Rosemary Griggs has been researching Devon's sixteenth century history for years. She has discovered a cast of fascinating characters and an intriguing network of families whose influence stretched far beyond the West Country. She loves telling the stories of the forgotten

women of history — the wives, sisters, daughters, and mothers who stood behind more famous men.Her first novel, A Woman of Noble Wit tells the story of Sir Walter Raleigh’s mother and features many of the county’s well loved places.  Rosemary will have her quill pen at the ready to sign copies of her book.

Rosemary also researches, creates and wears sixteenth century clothing to bring history to life in talks and costume demonstrations for museums and community groups all over the West Country.  Out of costume she leads heritage tours of the gardens at Dartington Hall. David Griggs has been involved in the world of English Folk Song all his life and was a member of well known Exeter based Folk Group Isca Fayre in the 1970s.
