Tsunami Run

Come to The Castle, Bude and watch our tough trail runners cross the finish line after completing one of three extreme coastal running challenges. Runners will set out from either Westward Ho (37 miles), Clovelly (26 miles) or Hartland Quay (16 miles) to complete this epic challenge. With more than 200 runners likely to take part in this gruelling cliff top challenge, why not come down and cheer them on as they reach Bude. The first runners are expected to cross the finish line and receive their well-deserved medal at The Castle from the early afternoon.

Heritage Day

Come to The Castle for our popular annual Bude-Stratton Heritage Festival, taking place between 11am and 4pm. This free community event celebrates the people, places, inventions and achievements influencing the past, present and future cultural heritage of the Town and wider area.

All attractions and activities are centred around The Castle, its grounds, The Bark House Lawn on the Bude Canal Wharf and the Parkhouse Centre. Firmly established favourites will exhibit or perform alongside exciting new additions, with a programme of talks and tours designed to engage event visitors of all ages. An array of cultural heritage and community stalls sited on the Bark House Lawn and in the Parkhouse Centre are there to explore, whilst a large marquee on The Castle lawn will be home to a heritage exhibition and local craft-based businesses.
