Love is in the air for Dawlish's event day
A Devon town is preparing to celebrate Valentine's Day on a whole new scale.
'Love Dawlish' will be a day of interactive events in the South Devon town on the theme of love.
The day will include performances, workshops and activities, including a 'Passionometer' to test the strength of love and an 'Imaginarium' to listen to stories and songs on the topic. People of all ages are being encouraged to attend the event in the town centre, on February 16.
Sophie McCormack, of Dawlish-based social enterprise Promenade Promotions, said: "We are working with local traders to boost sales at a chilly time of year, so there will be stalls selling locally made goods to sweeten the sourest swain and trinkets to melt the meanest maiden's heart."
Poetry and music will accompany food and drink in local cafes, while entertainment will continue throughout the day on the lawn by the bandstand.
Evening entertainment will include a variety night of music and comedy at The Brunswick Arms, featuring songs and sketches from local performers.
