3 categories of competition

Choose the category below that best reflects your vision of Totnes.

Fantastical Totnes

Here be Dragons! Picture this: The giants Gog and Magog climb over Totnes Castle to battle with Brutus, whilst a loathly worm emerges from the Leech Wells. Let your imagination run riot!

Future Totnes

What will our town look like in the future? Will trees grow up the High Street and hoverboards glide over the river?

Will roads disappear as transport speeds overhead?

Let us know!

Historical Totnes

Totnes has a long and fascinating history! Choose from one of the many periods that inspire you. It may be the medieval streets, the magical Leechwells, the ancient castle or perhaps the 17th century town. To help, you can research the Totnes Archives, Totnes Museum or the Totnes Image Bank.
