Get set for a blooming wonderful summer at Drake Circus

We kick off a summer of fun in Plymouth on 1st and 2nd June with our summer launch party!

Our showstopping flower installation will be back, transforming the Centre into a spectacular meadow and spilling out onto the streets with our wildflower canopy suspended above Old Town Street.

You can get into the laid back summer vibe thanks to our VW campervan photobooth, where you can capture a free summer snap to remember! Or take time out with the family and join local artist Ella Brett for a free windmill making workshop.
