Bird of Prey Talk and Otter Feeding, Tamar Otter & Wildlife Centre, North Petherwin, each day throughout May

Enter the “Wildwood” and you will see Wallabies, Meerkats, Servals, Polecats and various Birds of Prey. The Bird of Prey talks are at 11.30 & 2.30, whilst the Otter talk and feeding is 12pm and 3pm. They also have an award winning tea room on site!
John Curnow & Disco InKernow, The Falcon Hotel, Bude, May 5th, 7.30 – 11.30pm
Don’t miss out on live music from Josh Curnow, supported by Disco InKernow. Josh Curnow has been recognised as a big contender in the music industry for 2018, thanks to his appearance on Britain’s Got Talent, where he narrowly missed out on the final. Having already had air time and songs played on BBC Radio 2 / Radio 1, Josh is very used to being in the limelight, but being a captivating singer-songwriter with a drive to never be contempt, an artist with a sharp look but with a very humble attitude, Josh has his sights set high. He will be supported Disco InKernow, the Original, Awesometastic Disco Tribute Band!
