Jim Crawford

A Gallery Gig

Consummate finger picker and slide guitarist, Jim Crawford is something of an enigma. Originally from Lancashire, he now resides on the North Devon coast. A shy and retiring man who readily admits that recording studios fill him with dread and that he’d rather go fishing with his dog for company, has, none the less, toured much of Europe and the U.S.A captivating audiences with his intimate folk/blues style.

A talk on

Sir Richard Grenville

by former Mayor of Bideford, Andrew Powell

The story of the first attempt to colonise America by the English nation is one of extraordinary courage, despair, misfortune, joy, and perhaps, simple wonder. The story of Sir Richard Grenville and the Lost Colony of Roanoke represent one of the most extraordinary chapters in English history. Prepare if you will, to hear an adventure made for Hollywood; yet, one that was acted out with all conviction more than 400 years ago.

In the Gallery


All tickets £5 (all proceeds to The Plough Arts Centre)
