Downderry and Seaton Ocean Day 2013

Downderry and Seaton Ocean Day is a community and conservation event started, organised and primarily run by Anthony Butler of Mr B Productions. The original idea was for a small photo exhibition and film night, but with ideas snowballing the event turned into a much larger scale operation. Now in it’s third year, the event brings together several conservation / awareness organisations, community groups, local businesses and local artists and photographers to celebrate our ocean resource in a vibrant, fun, educational and interactive way. The event is now gaining a great reputation in the south west.
