Queen’s Theatre purchased tickets will be honoured

If you had already purchased tickets through the North Devon Theatre’s Trust – ie. you had paid for them – we will honour those tickets for the night of booking.

We will need to see either the actual tickets or your Theatre e-mail confirmation/booking receipt of payment as proof of purchase. This proof will need to be presented to our venue box office on the performance night, where they will be exchanged for the equivalent number of tickets for that same evening’s performance.

Unfortunately without this proof we cannot exchange the tickets.

You will not be required to pay for these exchanged tickets (even if you have secured a refund with the Theatre administrators or your credit card company)

The Gang Show will not be receiving any money for tickets already bought but we hope none of you will be out of pocket.

Anyone who has been fortunate to receive a refund, we hope you may be able to make a donation to our funds in the various collection buckets which will be placed around the venue during the performances.

If you have made a payment you need to put in a claim to the administrators or your credit card company. More details can be found on the Administrators web site page   or call 01392 448892.

If you had only reserved seats, these reservations will have been cancelled and you will need to purchase new seats via the new ticket phone line or link.

Devon County’s Organisational Structure

Hello, and welcome to an update from the County Commissioner team of Devon Scouting.  In the last week, you should have received a PDF document of the Organisational Structure via your DC.   This short film explains what it means.


  • We have published the line management diagram for the county.
  • We have organised ourselves into clusters to make it easier to communicate and work together.
  • The working groups are flexible with space for everyone to contribute at county level.
  • A handy list of contact details are included to help improve communications.
Devon Scouts Organisational Structure
Please take  5 minutes to watch this film explaining how this will work and how you can be part of the county team too!  We can’t do it on our own and we don’t want to.
Thanks for every you do for Scouting.  It really makes a difference to over 8000 young people across our county.

Marc Coton

Gang Show 2016

Posted on February 19th, 2016 by trevor

Well the tickets are nearly all sold out for Friday and Saturday now, with many who saw on Wednesday or Thursday going for a second time. The ‘Gang’ have a real range of songs, comedy and dance for you. With some real talents shining through, and some being rather glamorous – the cast members you might not quite expect to see ‘dress’ed up.

All the cast and support crew have put so much in so far and still two more performances to go. Well done. B-R-A-V-O and may the Force be with them.

Cubs – Sleeping with Sharks!!

Posted on April 7th, 2015 by trevor
Sleeping with the Sharks!!

51 Cub Scouts and 9 Leaders from 1st North Devon Barnstaple, 1st Chivenor and 1st Tawstock embarked upon an exciting adventure from Barnstaple Railway Station to the National Marine Aquarium Plymouth.

The train was generously chartered by First Great Western (FGW) with the help of David Gardner, Matthew Cambourne, Steve Lawrence and Dan Okey. On the outward journey a special train was attached to the back of a service train, which then detached at Exeter and continued to Plymouth, and on the way home was a special train all the way from Plymouth. Extra support was provided by Melanie Harvey (Station Manager Barnstaple) and Mark Chorley (Station Manager Plymouth) in loading and unloading the luggage and helping with getting it to and from the Aquarium.

Upon arrival in Plymouth the Cubs embarked on a hike to Plymouth Life Centre where they enjoyed swimming, then to McDonald’s, and finally to the Aquarium where they had a private tour including meeting the sharks, the resident turtle and seeing some of the marine life local to the area. There was then the opportunity to draw some of the things they had seen before settling down to a midnight feast and film and a little sleep  in front of the Shark Tank! The next day, after a hearty breakfast and a trip to Plymouth Hoe, the tired Cubs walked back to the station before travelling all the way home on a special train service.

“The Cubs all agreed it was a fantastic weekend and the effort put in by everyone really paid off, especially the guys at Plymouth” – Mathew Gard (Akela 1st North Devon and IT Technical Development Manager – FGW)

Judy Aldrich-Smith (Akela 1st Chivenor) said “This was a wonderful way for North Devon Cub Scouts to start the Year of Adventure, Scouting provides many activities for young people in North Devon, we would especially like to thank First Great Western for their generosity, help and support and at the staff at the National Marine Aquarium for making this adventure possible.”
