Great Torrington's Celebration for the Queen's 90th Birthday

We hope that the children will be seated for their ‘bring and share’ tea around 3pm; there will be a welcome by the Mayor and the Silver Band will play Happy Birthday as well as other music. From around 3.30pm there will be various activities for the children, which will be organised by Sophie at the Plough, and the Army Cadets. There will be face painting, a fancy dress competition, including a prize for the best ‘adult hat’, with a royal theme and Streetz Dance Company will perform too. If you have any ideas, or would like to be involved, please ring the Town Council on 01805 626135 or email
Please note that the square will be closed to traffic from 12 noon on 12th June, so please ensure any cars parked in the high street are moved before 12 noon.
