Drama at Poltimore

Congratulations to the Exeter University drama students!  

 For their final assessment in front of examiners, they took two stories from the Exeter Writers anthology, The Coastal Zoo, and produced a clever, funny, and entertaining interpretation/improvisation.

The two stories were;  Octopodi Stifado by Naomi Cohen and Making Connections by Cathie Hartigan.

The Exeter Writers were invited along and despite the freezing cold and grim venue, the wit and energy of the students warmed our hearts. 

We hope they all do very well in their final assessment and wish them all the best in their future careers.


The Secret of the RAMM

 There’s always lots to do and see at Exeter’s RAMM, and from 2-4pm in their fantastic new shop on Sunday 19th March, Cathie Hartigan will be signing copies of her bestselling time-slip, Secret of the Song. 

The modern day story is set in Exeter, and the museum is the source of inspiration for what happens in the story. 

Do go along and say hello.
