An intriguing film show was held in the Methodist Church, mainly covering Devon history as a whole but featuring some footage of the Hatherleigh hurricane and its results, also a few very grainy shots of the 1937 Carnival Procession.

The Silver Band played its way down from Moorview and were greeted in the square by an enthusiastic crowd, many having already indulged in the galleries around the town. The evening ended in the Town Hall in the presence of Ian Cognito, Andre Vincent and John Gordillo who had the audience in fits, as they took the piss out of yours truly and others.
