Sticklepath Grey Mare Festival – Halloween 31st October

Comments (2)

We need to rediscover Tom Pearse’s Grey Mare to learn what we can from her, and to ensure that there is good fortune and harmony for the coming year. But where is she?

Children will help us if they gather with their carers at Surgery Cottage, by the bridle path next to the bridge in Sticklepath. They will need to be there at 6pm, to be joined by musicians and stewards who will help their search through the village. Who else might appear? Well, some fellows owe the Grey Mare quite a bit from way back then, and will be there to make amends.

Certain doors will be knocked on to enquire where the Mare may be – and Halloween gifts will be exchanged. All being well, the Mare will be found and will lead a procession back to the bridle path before disappearing back to the moor for another year. Later on performances will continue in the Taw River [Synchronized swimming?;] and then the Devonshire Inn for adults to enjoy the rest of the evening.

Car parking will be arranged.

If you would like to know more, or would like to be involved as a musician, actor, steward or in another way contact: or or just come along at Halloween and be… amazed!

    This is a fantastic idea totally brilliant except you’ve spelt Pearse wrongly. It’s with an S not a C and I should know because Tom was my ancestor.
