Folk Diary coverage: events mostly taking place in the southern half of Devon and/or within an approx. 30 mile radius of Totnes as the crow flies, i.e. including Exeter and Plymouth, and covering Tavistock, Okehampton and Sidmouth for example. It is the main reference for compilation of the Harberton Folk email circulars. Map links (streetmap.co.uk): yield a fully zoomable map. I'm increasingly including postcodes in the venue information for those of you who rely on satnavs.
To submit new Diary entries: many new Diary entries come from you, our readers.
