It's that time of year again when little numbered yellow signs pop up on the side of the road.
You have a few days left to visit local artists studios for Devon Artist Network (DAN) which ends on Sunday 24th, but longer to follow the trail around Somerset as the Somerset Arts Weeks Festival 2017 starts on 23rd Sept.

Colyford Goose Fayre Colyford Goose Fayre
Colyford Goose Fayre
Colyford Goose Fayre is a traditional fayre dating back to medieval times. It is much more than just your average village fete!
A large number of villagers and friends dress in medieval costume and form a procession starting at the Elms at 2pm.
The fayre always tries to maintain it’s medieval setting. Goods are sold under tents and various produce is available – honey, pancakes, ram-roast, pottery, leather – and of course beer, tea and cakes.
Numerous medieval style skills are on show with metalwork, bodging, thatching and archery as well as children’s entertainment in the quintain and the greasy pole.
Among the entertainers there are mummers, strolling players, dancers and, the highlight of the afternoon, the mummers play.
The fair field is next to Springfield in Colyford, EX24 6QJ
