Tivvyfest 2012

Tivvyfest - Tiverton's Community Festival - are very keen that every individual, club, school and society that might wish to take part is aware of how keen we are for their input. We have had a number of clubs which have embraced the ideas behind the Festival and have been involved from the beginning, but we are very keen to get more involved.

The seal of the town of Tiverton

The seal of the town of Tiverton as displayed at the Pannier Market. The seal depicts Tiverton Castle and church above the town of Tiverton, together with the bridges over the River Lowman and River Exe, either side of a woolpack. The legend reads 'SIGILVM OPPIDI DE TYVERTON' which quite literally means 'The seal of the town of Tiverton'.
