Come and see Father Christmas

Our friend Santa will be visiting Great Torrington again this year under the Town Hall on Saturday December 17th between 10 and 1pm. All the children of Great Torrington are invited to meet him and he will give you all a Christmas packet.

This is a free gift for the children. We haven't forgotten the parents, there are free mince pies and cream, chestnuts and mulled cider!

The theme as always is a secret so come and see what it is!

Merry Christmas to all from the Great Torrington Cavaliers.


Come and see the New Year in with the Cavaliers in the square with entertainment for the whole family from 7pm.

Its free - Happy New Year

Mayfair & Carnival 2016

Great Torrington's crowning glory, our Mayfair, on the 1st Thursday of May. The Cavaliers had a busy day setting up at 7am and entertaining the crowds in the morning and again in the afternoon.

Our excellent dancing team trained for many weeks under the direction of Teri Adams, what a hard but excellent job she did and we are extrememely greatful for her help. The theme was a tribute to a true music legend, David Bowie.

In the afternoon we staged a very simple but very entertaining session;

Musical chairs and Hang Tough - The musical chairs was a 3 stage event the first for the under 10`s the second for the over 10`s and the 1 massive game for the Adults, it was a brilliant show.
