I am sure that many of you still have happy memories of Goggles and Gauntlets in Norfolk. Never ones to rest on our laurels Maria and I have been busy planning the 2019 event and are pleased to announce our plans.

You are coming to our home territory and we plan to make this event even better than previous ones.  If you thought that was not possible believe us, it is !  The dates are now finalised as Thursday 30th May to Monday 3rd June 2019 so the usual four nights event.

The venue is the superb Best Western Passage House Hotel, Hackney Lane, Kingsteignton, Devon. TQ12 3QH   in a stunning location on the banks of the River Teign estuary this hotel has all we need and more…….  Awesome swimming pool, fitness room and beauty treatments too if you fancy. The large dining room overlooks the estuary too. Once again we have the advantage of an onsite pub, The Passage House Inn which is adjacent to and owned by the hotel, this worked very well in Norfolk and gave a massive choice of drinking space. A new idea is live music on the Saturday night after the dinner/awards and we have provisionally booked the function room for this so we can have a REAL party. Further details to follow later after we have auditioned a few groups.

 See the link below for details.


We have negotiated a special deal that is not available direct with the hotel so you can only book the package through Maria who will handle all bookings and deal with the hotel.

Standard Double Room, breakfast and three course dinner each day   Per Couple £120 p nt.

Single Occupancy Standard room, breakfast and three course dinner       £80 per nt.

We believe this to be a really good deal.

It is possible to upgrade your room for an additional charge and more details of this will be sent to you after you have expressed interest.

What will we be doing over the weekend then ?

To enjoy the weekend fully you would need to be staying the four nights. We shall be driving along the English Riviera, taking in all the seaside towns on the way. We plan to visit the Dartmouth Steam Railway. A long drive over stunning Dartmoor is a must with a pub for lunch of course and perhaps a jail visit ? A scenic drive will take in the delights of Devon villages including Widecombe, famous for the annual Widecombe Fair, visit the Moretonhampstead Motor Museum and other nearby attractions with of course plenty of rest stops. The weekend will be full of action with plenty of time to relax too in what must be one of the most superb settings in Devon.

WHAT DO I DO NOW ?   Spaces are limited so express your interest NOW and get on the list  .Contact Maria on [email protected] or Ian on [email protected]
