Exhibitors: Dartmoor Range (Anna Curnow; HK White; twool; The Dartmoor Soap Company; Clare's Preserves; Lily Warne)
Dartmoor is home to a huge wealth of artistic talent and for the last few years the National Park Visitor Centres have been promoting and selling the ‘Dartmoor Range’, those items that are inspired by the National Park. The Dartmoor Range producers now tell us their story. How Dartmoor inspires them? How they make the most of its natural resources? And what makes Dartmoor so special? An opportunity to delve in to the world of Dartmoor’s artisans and hear their story in their own words.

Exhibitors: Dartmoor 365
When John Hayward originally published his book giving people a reason to visit every one of the National Park’s 365 square miles, little did he know that he was creating a phenomenon. Now the book is celebrated here, alongside the Dartmoor 365 Facebook group and also features images from the Dartmoor WAGS (Wheelchair Access Group) on accessing Dartmoor and the exhibition launches the 3rd Dartmoor Walking Festival (25 August to 2 September). Come and find out how the book has inspired others to explore Dartmoor, enjoy the art and images it has been responsible for and find an event or activity to start your own exploration.
