Local history isn't just about the great and the good. It's about who we are, how we got here, and what matters to us as local residents.
We're all part of our community and for generations local folk have enjoyed 'The Great Torquay Saturday Night Out' or as many of us refer to is as going 'out, out'.
Dr Kevin Dixon will be here to take you on a virtual journey from Torre to the Strand, visiting those pubs and clubs that we remember from our younger days - many of which we have lost.
This is the story of how Torquay grew as a tourist town, guaranteed to make you feel (old) young again!
The talk is free to attend (booking required) and is included with the Abbey's normal admission fee.
