On the 28th November the Barbican Christmas lights were switched on with hundreds gathering to see the Children’s Lantern Parade. Over 200 school children carrying their lanterns along the Barbican cobble stones. Even the Barbican Prawn this year has been given the Christmas treatment and looks stunning at night!
The clocks may have gone back and the evenings are getting darker, but this is where the Plymouth Barbican starts to shine. The Barbican is nicely lit up this time of year and the friendly local traders are enthusiastic as ever. Christmas is just around the corner there is no better place to be than here on the waterfront.
After a packed event schedule over the summer the Plymouth Barbican takes a breath during October before unleashing a 3 day Thanksgiving event in November. More on this next month .
Firstly congratulations of the guys at Parade Antiques who won the ABB Barbican Raft Race last month!
We have a number of large events taking place during this month here on the Plymouth Barbican, including the unmissable annual ABB Barbican Raft Race!
Sorry for the delay in getting out the latest entry of Maurice Southgate’s diary, we have spent the last week working tirelessly(ish) to build a raft robust enough to fit us all on and not sink (a feat of engineering some thought to be impossible).
The maiden voyage of our glorious raft, ahead of the Barbican raft race being held on Sunday 16th September. Worth a visit for sure, we may well all fall in the water!
This blog? What is it about? Good question. What are blogs usually about? Some pretentious fool wishing for his voice to be heard, sadly this isn’t much different. Alas, we are just simple Antiques folk trying to fashion a niche in this world.
Antiques and all things that are related, things we believe you should know about – the sort of useless information that improves only your pub-quiz performance. Anything from history, antiques, sports, even cooking… who knows? Anything is key here.
