Mad Hatters' Blog

Mad hatters love tea parties… we love them… especially the cake. We also love good food, fun events and interesting people!

Local events May 31, 2010

We want to help people stay up to date with the best things that are going on nearby, as although fun things happen in Devon they’re often over by the time you hear about them from your mate. Help us keep up to date with fun things that are happening in the coming days, weeks or months and we’ll try to help spread the word!
