Congratulations to 'The Lost Colony'

Massive congratulations from little Fairlynch Museum and the Raleigh 400 team to the cast of The Lost Colony show on the successful start of their 81st season. 

Do remind your audience about the great and multi-talented Sir Walter Raleigh, one of the stars of your show. Born in East Budleigh only a few miles from the fair town of Budleigh Salterton in the glorious county of Devon UK from where I am writing, and unjustly put to death by the cowardly King James I on 29 October 1618. 

It’s four hundred years ago, but here we remember him. Great pics of your show now appearing online; I thought I would send in exchange these photos of some of our Fairlynch Museum volunteers taken yesterday at Budleigh Salterton’s 2018 Gala Week.

  1. On behalf of all of us involved with this year's production of The Lost Colony on Roanoke Island, USA, we deeply appreciate your good wishes and wish to assure you that Sir Walter Raleigh is quite handsomely portrayed in our outdoor drama.

    We send warmest wishes to everyone at the Fairlynch Museum and the 400 team as we celebrate the 400th anniversary of a truly remarkable man.
