This Saturday 6th October will see McCoys Arcade awash with illustrators, designers and makers from this fair city as well as pastures nearby, hell yea! It's another glorious Handmade Arcade! We're really excited to welcome faces new and old to this beautiful little space - so come hang out, grab some food from McCoys Cafe, have a browse in local shops and see what people are doing in Devon! It's really quite exciting!

Since the last fair McCoys Cafe has refined it's offerings and now boasts a fine selection of gourmet burgers - all served on delicious brioche baps with lots of veggie options too :)
They also have a FREE CINEMA! and Saturday afternoon will be showing "Exit through the gift shop" a Banksy film documenting the inside story of street art, be sure to pop down it's FREE! and starts at 2pm.

Bunyip Beads and Buttons will also have make and take workshops as well as their usual button inspired offerings, also within the arcade, Good Golly Miss Molly and chums will be hosting a badge making table, so you can come and get creative.
