We’ve reached the final weekend of this year’s Festival and on Saturday we have lots of exhibitions, displays and installations on offer as well as ‘A Short Walk to No Place’ starting at Victoria Park and a ‘Garden Discovery Tour’ at Saltram.
Just three more days left of this year’s Festival! Where does the time go? On Friday we have a talk at the Devonport Naval Heritage Centre called ‘Sail to Steam: The Industrialisation of Craftsmen’ and a ‘Plymouth Blitz Walk and Talk’ as well as many exhibitions on display across the city.
We’ve got a busy programme tomorrow with a family workshop at Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery, tours of the Prysten House, St Andrews Minster Church, the Distillery and the Citadel. Exhibitions, installations, displays, an organ recital at St Andrews and a talk about ‘Plymouth’s Tudor Wreck’ at the Roland Levinsky Building are also planned.
It’s lovely weather for a tour of the Devonport Naval Heritage Centre this evening! A talk about ‘The Growth of Plymouth During Medieval Times’ at Ford Park Cemetery and a ‘Blackbooks Poetry’ session at the Mayflower Pub are also running later today!
Exhibitions about Devonport, Stonehouse, the 5th Earl of Saltram, the History of Plymouth, portraiture, photography, contemporary art and Napoleon Bonaparte are all on display at various venues across the city tomorrow.
