Queen’s Drive Space in Exmouth has reopened for a new season with a top line-up of entertainment and fun planned for all the family from now until September.
The outdoor space on the seafront, created by East Devon District Council, features a Jurassic-themed play park, scrumptious food and drink stalls and an events area for live performances and big screen films and live streamed shows from theatres across the UK.
Exmouth-based artist, Anna Fitzgerald of Seadog Art has been working closely with five local schools to produce a number of larger than life paintings for the Exmouth Watersports Centre.
Creating hundreds of paintings at any one time, Anna Fitzgerald celebrates nature and wildlife through her unique and vibrant paintings.
With construction due to start on the Exmouth Watersports Centre from June 2019, Grenadier, the project developer, is keen to retain the beauty of the area throughout the build process by working with the local artist and schools to design the hoarding.
