Powderham Castle Celebrates!
29th November, 2016
‘Powderham Castle was chosen as the winner of the Best Event category with BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend and also Best Stately home runner up in the Reader Star Awards in Devon.’
This year there have been record levels of Primary Times readers voting for their favourite local family friendly places and people in Primary Times’ Reader Star Awards.
Parents of children aged 4 to 11 across Devon were asked to complete a survey that appeared in this family friendly magazine that has a distribution of 58,500 copies to primary schools in Devon. Many families also cast nominations online via the Primary Times website – www.primarytimes.net
The answers reveal an honest reflection of where people prefer to spend their free time, and provide a vital snapshot of what’s popular with local families.
Readers completed a survey that appeared in the Back to School issue of Primary Times asking them for their favourite family attraction; family eating place; indoor play centre; stately home or historical attraction; party venue/entertainer; craft activity provider; outdoor play centre; sports venue or provider and best event. Readers were also asked for an overall winner.

Linda Edwards, Publishing Editor at Primary Times said: “Each year we are getting more and more readers completing the survey which is fantastic news! In particular, we’d like to say a big thank you to all the readers who took the time to fill out the survey. As always, the results are incredibly thought-provoking and revealing, and offer a glimpse into what is going through the minds of local families. The individual winners of each category all deserve a round of applause as they are clearly offering something that our readers want.”
