Torrington Cavaliers 'Fire of London' Bonfire 2000 Great Torrington is renowned for its great festivals and community events....

The world- famous and much publicised group of volunteers, The Torrington Cavaliers
[more..], often coordinate events in the town and are particularly famous for their spectacular bonfires, the last being a full size replica of HMS Victory to celebrate the anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar. The commemoration of the Battle of Torrington is a magnificent annual event in mid-February with torchlit procession and free fire work display.

Every Spring, visitors join locals to celebrate the traditional May Fair, first held in 1554. Torrington Carnival is also in May and many music and arts events are held in June as part of the North Devon Festival. RHS Garden Rosemoor has a huge programme of special events, particularly popular is the Rose Festival in June and the September Festival.

Apple days and special Halloween events are held in the autumn, culminating in the Great Torrington Christmas Festival and Big Sing. The Plough Arts Centre in the centre of the town also has a full and varied programme of theatre, film and music producing unique and memorable entertainment for all ages, with a wonderful community atmosphere, throughout the year.

There's so much to do all year round...
