Go Gothic Event

October 12 @ 9:00 am - October 19 @ 5:00 pm

Part of Tavistock Library’s celebration of Tavistock’s Gothic and Neo-Gothic style heritage, in literature and architecture.

Pixies are part of our local folklore and Anna Eliza Bray (1790-1883) was an English historical novelist who lived in the Vicarage in Tavistock. She collected local myths and legends, and her cousin, Christina Rossetti, wrote the world-famous poem ‘Goblin Market’.

All the garden (gnome-sized) pixies and gnomes will be displayed in Tavistock Library or the windows of Mainly Stationery, I Love Candy, Lambert’s Emporium and Tavistock Visitor Information Centre.

Prize winners will be announced at the Go Gothic Market on 19th October in Tavistock’s Butcher’s Hall Market.

If you’d like to make & enter your own gnome or pixie, closing date for entries is 8th October.
