Roll up, roll up! Big Screen In The Park is coming to town for seven nights of outdoor cinema this summer.
The city’s largest outdoor cinema event returns to Northernhay Gardens from Monday 6th to Sunday 12th August.
Visitors to the annual event can expect al fresco films, bars, picnics and on-site entertainment. This is a unique opportunity to experience the magic of the movies on a huge 10m screen, with the illuminated Cathedral city as a stunning backdrop.
The positive and restorative powers that the great outdoors can have on physical and mental health are well known, and as the West Country weather finally takes a turn for the better, it is a perfect time to venture outside, get back to nature and embrace the multitude of benefits it brings.
Despite the arrival of the new year and, with it, a flurry of new year’s resolutions, winter is a time when it can be tempting to let good habits slide - often in favour of hibernating in front of the TV with a giant box of chocolates. But with the decreased exposure to sunlight that comes with shorter, darker days, Vitamin D levels are at an all-time low in winter, often leaving you feeling lethargic, low and sapped of energy. Getting some fresh air is more important than ever now, and for more reasons than you might think.
The Jolly Good Jaunt on Sunday 29th October will again give walkers the opportunity to take part and raise vital funds for local charity Hospiscare.
The continued success of the Jolly Good Jaunt owes much to the generous support of local businesses and groups including the Deer Park County House Hotel for the splendid venue, the Honiton Agricultural Association for the use of their showground, Denhay Farms, Devon Hog Roast & Tesco`s Honiton for the delicious lunch. Go Outdoors in Exeter are kindly allowing a 10% discount to walkers who produce their registration letter.
