THG's Garden Party is back by popular demand!

This year the party will take place on the bank holiday weekend - Saturday 25 May. It will mark the opening of THG’s new interactive exhibition ‘Paper Play’ and is also the launch event of ‘In Honiton’: a week of local events.

THG’s new Manager, Ruth Gooding said,

The Garden Party is now in its fourth year and growing in ambition! There will be artist performances, live music and family art activities. This is a great event for Honiton and showcases the creativity of East Devon.

We are excited to welcome artist and boatmaker Gail McGarva who will moor her Story Boat in the garden. Children will be able to climb inside this magical boat to hear stories of her past and make an artwork.’

Visitors will also be able to browse the new exhibition and enjoy an artist performance by experienced artist and performer, Sophia Clist. They will also be encouraged to drop into the ‘Paper Play Lab’ upstairs, relax amongst the beanbags and experiment with creating paper artworks.

Local food will be on offer including wood-fired pizzas and gourmet burgers, as well as live music and a bar.
