Exmouth’s Bicton Inn has lined up a number of events for the festive fortnight.

Laurie Ward and friends entertain on Sunday, December 17, at 5pm. Singer/songwriter Laurie is a talented artist, whose music has been featured on Radio 1, and at the Glastonbury Festival with his band Barefoot Bandit. Laurie will be performing reggae, folk, gentle ballads and some of his own songs.

Carols at the Bicton Inn is at 7.30pm on Sunday, December 17. An evening of participatory fun, it will get you into the Christmas spirit with carols and Christmas songs. “The piano is tuned, the brass section is polished, and the mince pies are hot,” say the event organisers. “All that’s needed now is your singing. Word sheets provided. The event is very popular so please come early if you want to sit down.”

On Thursday, December 21, at 8.30pm, it’s Becky’s Christmas Open Music Night - an open session featuring folk, country and indie acoustic music hosted by Exmouth’s Becky Brooks.

Talented German singer/songwriter Daniela Ruettinger appears at 5pm on Saturday, December 23. She’ll be performing a selection of folk, rock and indie covers and some of her own soulful songs.

The Bicton Christmas Folk Night is on Thursday, December 28, starting at 8.30pm. Hosted by Exmouth Shanty Man Derek Brooks, there’s a varied selection of singers and musicians performing.

Virtuoso rock guitarist Joe Whibley and dynamic piano player, singer/songwriter Jacob Hillman will be performing at 5pm on Saturday, December 30. The duo will be performing a wide range of material – from the Scissor Sisters to David Bowie – together with some originals.

Finally, on New Year’s Eve at 10pm, it’s Martin Weller. The New Year shindig is an annual fixture for the singer-songwriter, and will feature his latest songs and a selection of favourite rock and pop classics.
