One of the most popular events in the South Hams, Prawle Fair is like stepping back in time with all the old favourite attractions such as swing boats, children’s train ride, test your strength, slippery pole, hoopla, raffles, children’s tug of war and lots more.
A children’s fancy dress competition follows the traditional raising of the glove and later in the afternoon there are knobbly knees and handsomest ankles contests for anyone who wants to exhibit their leggy charms.
Prawle Fair is a great community effort with lots of the villagers involved in one way or the other. It is run annually to raise money for the upkeep of Prawle Community Hall, other community projects and support various local good causes.

With a new 4-piece line-up, the band weave enchanting melodies with catchy choruses, virtuoso vibrant fiddle, rhythmic 12-string guitar, 5-string bass, bespoke hand-percussion and 3-part vocal harmonies.
Their music leads you through a musical journey of the senses andemotions, and the desire to dance is irresistible.
3 Daft Monkeys’ famously intense and dynamic live shows lend themselves to venues of all sizes, and audiences of all ages and backgrounds.
Their shows are individually tailored to suit their environment, from intimate acoustic story-led performances in small village halls and churches, to dynamic electric festival shows with a guest brass section and VJs.
Fascinating lyrics of personal and whimsical observations on life, and folk tales both ancient and modern, are told within the swirling layers of their music, all with the essential catchy sing-along chorus.
Their latest story-led and theatrical album “Of Stones and Bones” (Best Album, Spiral Earth Awards) is a collection of old, new and fictional Cornish tales of forbidden love, murder, rebellion, witchcraft and piracy.
All delivered with “panache and a wicked vein of humour”.
With their quirky and original approach to music, and their passion, intensity and sheer joy of life, 3 Daft Monkeys have gained themselves a large and loyal cult following.
Their music is hard to pigeon-hole, mixing and crossing many musical genres from Celtic, Klezmer, Gypsy, Balkan, Latin, Ska, Dub Reggae, Indie, Rock and even a hint of Shostakovich.
After experiencing the band’s notoriously energetic live performance at Glastonbury Festival last summer, Mark Radcliffe declared them as one of his “Highlights of the Festival” on BBC TV coverage, and subsequently invited them to play a session on his BBC Radio 2 Folk Show.
The band have also performed a live session with Whispering Bob Harrison BBC Radio 2.
3 Daft Monkeys have played at a huge number and variety of festivals in the UK, including Fairport Convention’s Cropredy, Beautiful Days, Trowbridge Village Pump, Towersey Folk Festival, Cambridge Folk Festival and Boomtown Fair.
Their eclectic mix of styles has drawn them a following right across Europe, and the band have headlined festivals in Holland, Germany and France. 3 Daft Monkeys have also recently joined acrobats and circus performers in the new and vibrant boutique “busking festival” scenes of Switzerland and Italy.
“The musicianship- the virtuosity, the song craft, the arrangement- is simply astonishing “ (Spiral Earth)
“Varied and stirring acoustic style.. Outstanding fiddle work” (The Guardian)
“Music as joyously life-affirming as this deserves a huge audience” (West Briton)
“A brilliant band… I think this is absolutely amazing” Mike Harding (BBC Radio 2)
“A veritable melting pot of styles makes a colourful carnival of sound”(fROOTS)
“Their live show strikes a quality balance of spaced-out dizziness, dance-ability and
sophisticated folk music.” (Bearded Theory Festival)
Texas-raised Londoner Rodney Branigan learned to play in Austin, perform in Los Angeles, craft songs in Nashville, and put it all together in London.
Artists are often described as having “a unique talent”; few epitomise this more than multi instrumentalist Rodney Branigan. In fact, Texan-born Rodney’s talents as a musician are as plentiful as the many instruments he expertly plays side by side.
He masterfully combines extraordinary multi instrumentalist skills with heartfelt lyrics and a rich soulful voice;(often compared to Jeff Buckley)
“The revelation of the year or even the decade” (Crossroads Magazine, France)
A passion for musical diversity has seen Rodney travel the world with his own, inimitable style of musicianship. Having toured his native America coast-to-coast, Rodney’s desire to share his fusion of organic progressive folk with undertones of rock, flamenco, classical, bluegrass and jazz have also seen him play China as well as France, Germany and Switzerland; earning him love from new fans and respect from established musicians alike.
Rodney Branigan the songwriter is a truly gifted man. Rodney Branigan the performer has to be seen to be believed. Having opened for Billy Sheehan, Jack Johnson, Francis Cabrel, G-Love, Billy Bragg, Albert Lee, Show of Hands to name a few.
