Music on the Meadows

Torre Abbey Meadows

Music on the Meadows promises to be the biggest free party on Torre Abbey Meadows in Torquay in decades. Expect an amazing day and evening of entertainment for all the family.

Join us for a nostalgic musical odyssey through the decades of The Queen’s reign and don’t forget to grab a flag to wave.

Music Line Up

Highlights on the main stage includes an opening performance from South Devon Rock Choir, Funk City Band, John Matthew and Happy Days, with their spectacular Platinum Jubilee Show. There will also be party DJ sets from the McGowan Family and Chris Tofu – the maverick of the vintage remix.

The musical entertainment will come to a magnificent close with very special headliners, The Bootleg Beatles, who have performed everywhere from The Cavern to Buckingham Palace and the Royal Albert Hall to Glastonbury Festival. They are currently on a European tour, before making a triumphant return to the UK for this exclusive event.

Family Fun

Head to the Kids Town area and Children’s Tent with lots of fun, family entertainment from the team behind Children’s Week.

Doorsteps Arts will be on hand providing circus skills and hula hooping, while there will be a family-friendly circus show called Do What Your Mama Told Yah, which promises to get very messy.

There will also be various walk-abouts, including The Shrinking Violets Bubbleologists, Batman and the Batmobile, robots and Cosmo the Clown with balloon modelling.

The Sea Scouts will also be running lots of traditional games including a Crockery Smash and Splat the Rat. Also on the menu will be face painting and glitter tattooing.

A right royal knees up

Join us for what promises to be a right royal knees-up and a wonderful celebration of Her Majesty the Queen’s 70 Years of Service to the British people.  Don’t miss the free party of the decade – we’ll see you at the front!
