What’s On in North Devon This Weekend
South West Birdman – Sat 5th August
Don’t miss the high flying South West Birdman in Ilfracombe on Saturday 5th August. You will see a variety of crazy costumes and contestants joining the 2017 annual Ilfracombe Round Table event to help raise money for local good causes.
Just a short distance from our Combe Martin holiday parks, the Ilfracombe Birdman takes place on Ilfracombe Pier from 11.30am. The Birdman Competition sees fanatical aviators and budding pilots throw themselves off Ilfracombe Pier into the ice-cold waters below - all hoping to "fly" the furthest and be crowned champion of the event.
You can also see a number of live bands, real ale and cider festival, BBQ, bouncy castles, trade village stands, circus workshops, craft activities and firework display – something for all the family to enjoy.
Combe Martin Carnival Week– Sunday 6th – 12th August
