In olden times, our home town of Brixham was very much divided into two halves. The area around the harbour was known as "Fishtown" and was the area of our trawler fleet, and the fishing families. "Higher Brixham" up the hill, known as "Cowtown" was more the domain of the farming and agricultrual industry of the town. At times there could be a lot of rivalry between the two parts of the town.
The Friends of Brixham Library, have been conducting extensive historical research, centering on the records, graveyard, and stories around St Marys Church in Higher Brixham, and are presenting some of the research as an evening of entertainment, music, and spoken word on March 23rd 2019.
The South Devon Players Theatre & Film Company, as a local organisation based in the town, are delighted to have a number of our team (Allison, Sarah, Laura, Wayne) involved in the performances.
The event is open to the public at 'St Mary's Church' in Brixham on March 23rd - doors open 7pm for 7.30pm start. Tickets are £5 adults children free.
Refreshments will be served with a glass of wine included in ticket price available on the door. See Harpingmad, Folk Inspired, Missin' Tackle and Friends and hear words from Victorian Brixham spoken by members of the South Devon Players. All proceeds to the church restoration fund.
