Saturday 2nd, Sunday 3rd and Monday 4th May 2015, 10am to 5pm.

3. BMAD Motorbike Festival:

The BMAD (Bikers Make A Difference) Festival is back on Paignton Green once again. The Green will be alive with live music, stunt shows, beer tents and stalls, alongside the hundreds of motorbikes from across the UK. All in the name of raising money for local charities, the festival will be enjoyed by all ages, whether they have an interest in motorbikes or not.

4. Dartmouth’s Spring Flower Festival:

On Saturday 2nd May, take a relaxing day trip to Dartmouth’s beautiful Spring Flower Festival. Taking place in The Royal Avenue Gardens, there will be refreshments, a tombola, floral art, scents and soaps. Lots of lovely plants will also be on sale to fill your gardens with memories of a great South Devon holiday. All funds raised will go towards a new pyramid community greenhouse. Why not treat your family this May Bank Holiday and travel there and back on the Paignton to Dartmouth Steam Train?

5. Blissful Beaches:

If you’re after something a bit quieter this weekend, the breath-taking English Riviera will always have something to offer.
