But what’s on in Ilfracombe while you stay with us? We have everything here from farmers markets to South West Birdman competition – and everything inbetween! There’s certainly sure to be something for you to enjoy, we know how to entertain in Ilfracombe.
We have put together a list of our favourite events in Ilfracombe throughout August for our guests to enjoy – ‘What’s on in Ilfracombe’. We hope this gives you some inspiration of things to enjoy whilst you visit us and for even more ideas, our next blog will reveal our favourite picnic spots in North Devon.
5 August – South West Birdman
An event not to be missed – the ever eventful South West Birdman! Thrill seekers ‘fly’ off Ilfracombe pier in their own creations in an attempt to ‘fly’ the furthest before landing in the sea. Who will win this year? Read more here.
13, 20, 27 August – Music on the Bandstand
Relax in Runnymeade Gardens to the sounds of live music as Ilfracombe presents Bands on the Bandstand. Each Sunday between 2-4pm a different live band will perform for free for all to enjoy.
27 August – Ilfracombe Carnival
Summer wouldn’t be complete without the annual Ilfracombe Carnival. The parade sets off at 6pm and arrives at Broad Street at approximately 8pm, leaving plenty of time for dinner or a quick drink at The Carlton Hotel. A highly enjoyable evening, it also raises money for local charities.
28 August – Mini Madness
The Annual Grand Tour ends here in Ilfracombe and what a display they put on for us! It takes up to 20 minutes for all the mini’s, decorated in their own unique styles, to drive past one by one before reaching The Landmark.
