Honiton’s Thelma Hulbert Gallery (THG) will be celebrating the launch of its new community pocket park with a garden party next month.
The family-friendly event is part of the national Museums at Night festival, which runs from Wednesday, May 11, to Wednesday, May 18. The evening will include art activities, food and music - coordinating with the gallery’s community exhibition, Soil Culture : Casting Seeds.
Angela Blackwell, THG’s curator, said: “This is going to be a great event for all the family. Join us to take part in artist workshops, design a floral badge and make your own charcoal on a campfire.
“We hope families will enjoy the music, children’s face painting and fancy dress competition.
“I am looking forward to the wood-fired pizzas, too.”

Emma Molony, THG’s marketing and fundraising officer, added: “Our pocket park is one of only 87 created nationally by the government for the community of Honiton to enjoy.
“It has been redesigned by leading garden designer Anna Wardrop, who has been working feverishly with local schools and volunteers to plant the garden with flowers, fruit trees and vegetable beds for the launch event.”
