WHAT'S ON IN ASHBURTON - ANNUAL EVENTS
With its colourful traditions and vibrant community there is always something going on in Ashburton - and everyone is welcome!
For entertainment there are regular concerts and local bands at several venues in the town and the local community cinema has regular showings of highly acclaimed movies in a relaxed and informal environment complete with cushions and a bar.
Up until the time of the Magna Carta there was no check on the price or quality of bread and ale. Records of Ashburton’s Ale Tasters fining brewers for selling bad ale date back to the 13th century, soon after the first Ale Conners were appointed in London in 1276.
