Apart from the attractions of shops, Cathedral, quayside and restauants, The Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Gallery (Entry Free) have an exhibition on the impact of the First World War on art and facial reconstructive surgery. Also 1st world war recruitment posters.
There is a "Victorians and Gothic" exhibition in the gallery - "William Morris and Augustus Pugin are represented together with the leaders of the Arts and Crafts Movement, Walter Crane and William Lethaby, and the pre-Raphaelites, Edward Burne-Jones, Ford Madox Brown, John William Waterhouse and John Ruskin.
There are a variety of exhibits – from paintings and tapestries to furniture, stained glass and metalwork.
A highlight of the exhibition is the first in the series of great Holy Grail Tapestries – one of the most ambitious projects of William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones. Based on Le Morte d’Arthur by Sir Thomas Malory, these tell the story of the spiritual quest by the Knights of the Round Table for the Holy Grail, the cup from which Jesus and his disciples are said to have drunk at the Last Supper"

Pantomime - Goody Two Shoes The Downderry and Seaton Village Hall Drama Group proudly presents Goody Two Shoes by Paul Reakes from Wednesday February 18 to Saturday February 21 at The Village Hall, Downderry. 7.30pm. Bar available.
30 years of panto in the Village - who would have believed it - Oh yes we would!!!!!
Goody Two Shoes is directed by Neil Asprey and stars Lucy Walker as Goody, Kim James as Simon, Steve Cotton as Dame Molly Coddle, Carol Tavener as Cissie, Kate Entwistle as Teddy, Janet Whitton as Septica, Marian Candy and Celine Cros as Polo and Rolo, Ben Brockbank as the Elf Cobbler, Kevin Done as Titus Tightwad, and a sparkling chorus line of Louise Lawry, Marie Carnell, Sue Pidgen, Jeff Rees, Tim Pullin and Mal Moss. So, come along and join in the fun, there's loads of the cast that you may want to have some friendly banter with!
In Goody Two Shoes Septica, an evil sorceress, has left her magic shoes with the Elf Cobbler for mending. As they are her only comfortable pair, she is far from pleased, when pretty Goody Coddle appears wearing them. Septica’s revenge, and the wishes Goody makes while wearing the magic shoes, set in train a series of hilarious events, which culminate in a happy ending with lots of slapstick fun, jokes and songs along the way.
Tickets will be on sale from Tuesday February 3 from The Blue Plate deli and restaurant, Main Road, Downderry, opposite The Village Hall. Tickets will be available from 10am each day Tuesday-Saturday, £6 for adults and £3 for children under 16. Cash purchases only. Get in quick before they sell out!
