affordable £75.

Devon Hall is a superb,

modern venue offering large

public spaces with up-to-date

facilities and plenty of free

part of the event’s success

in 2018 and is enabling it to

and visitors as possible from

within North Devon and

is North Devon Enterprise

Day when all businesses can

join together to celebrate the

vibrant local business community,

support each other

and promote the vast range

of products and services

provided in the area.

Shouldn’t we do this every

day? Definitely and North

Devon Enterprise Day aims

to increase co-operation

and support among businesses

all year round so that

all succeed and maintain a

thriving economy.
