Sea Change is inspired and organised by Drift Record Shop in the heart of Totnes, South Devon on 25 and 26 August. Dreamt up by the innovative Drift Record Shop, Sea Change mirrors the passions of the people that run the shop.
Food and drink: Community craft brewery, New Lion (trading in Totnes for nearly 200 years) will brew special Sea Change beers and Totnes Brewing Co. will cask its own Sea Change ale; chef Patrick Hanna of London’s Rochelle Canteen, Duck Soup and most recently L’Entrepot, will create a special Drift pop-up fast food joint. Totnes’s cafes, restaurants, bars and independent shops will join the party – street markets will fill the market square, the family-friendly Bay Horse Inn will host a good ale festival and, next door to Drift, the Riverford Farm Shop will unveil the new Ben’s Wine & Tapas bar.
