One of the potential highlights will be the drone racing on Saturday (tomorrow) - some of the country’s finest drone pilots will be heading to Sidmouth Cricket Club and, weather permitting, spectators can watch exciting races from 11am until 5pm.

It will run from 2pm until 2.45pm at the Norman Lockyer Observatory. Marty will also be doing a Q&A from 3.30pm until 4pm. Visit for more information.

Be sure to pick up a copy of next week’s Herald to catch a glimpse of the festival pictures.
