The Queens Diamond Jubilee in June will be an ideal time to enjoy the long weekend in Tavistock. There are a number of events being held over the long weekend, for you and the family to enjoy in this quaint village in Devon.
A host of activities will be going on in the town centre and the Meadows, guaranteed to please everyone from toddlers through to the elderly.
Jubilee in the Meadows
Celebrate the Jubilee in the meadows of Tavistock. There will be a list of bands and performers to entertain the crowds, with a host of activities for everyone.
The festivities will be spread over the Sunday and Monday (3rd-4th June) from 10am to 8pm.
With any luck the weather will be dry and on the Sunday there will be a 'picnic in the park' for everyone to come and enjoy together. There will be locally produced food on offer that will include a tender hog roast, served by Browns Hotel with a collection of homemade breads, rolls, chutneys and relishes. Additionally, bring your own food and soak up the atmosphere in the meadows.
Browns will also be offering homemade cakes and scones to ensure you have the best of British treats to enjoy on the Jubilee weekend.
A beer and cider festival will also be staged in the Meadows, run by Tavistock Lions Club - a bar will be run by town hall staff, offering a variety of other beverages to wash down that hog roast with.
As soon as you enter Tavistock you will notice the hustle and bustle coming from the meadows and this will be linked with the Garden Festival in the pannier market and Bedford square.
The garden festival will be held in the pannier market and will offer:

Additionally, on the Monday, between 10pm and 10.30pm on Whitchurch Down, a beacon will be lit to celebrate the jubilee, one of 2,600 similar ones being lit up and down the country, to celebrate Queen Elizabeth's 60-year reign.
If you're from outside of Devon and looking to come and stay in Tavistock, then there are a number of hotels to choose from. Browns Hotel offers a unique experience in a restored 17th century coaching inn. If you choose to visit on another weekend Tavistock is a thriving town. It's always bustling with markets and small unique shops selling local produce, arts and crafts, rich in history and heritage, and is set against the wild backdrop of Dartmoor national park.
