Trentishoe is a village in North Devon, England. It is in the Shirwell deanery of the Church of England. James Hannington, a future saint and a martyr, took charge of the small parish church of Trentishoe in 1873.
Trentishoe free festivals
In 1973 a small ecologically-themed free rock festival was held on a clifftop site near Trentishoe, titled the Trentishoe Whole Earth Fayre (possibly following a minuscule 1972 festival of which records are sparse). The 'International Times', in 1973, noted "The Trentishoe bash, kicking off on July 9th and running for a couple of weeks, looks like kindling a similar flame to that ignited by the Glastonbury Fayre". The organisors of the 1973 event were Greg Haynes, Mike Tanner, Dave Mackay and Norman with music arranged by Greasy Truckers and Bath Arts Workshop. Bands included Hawkwind, Pink Fairies and Magic Muscle. A follow-up event took place in 1975, and another under the same name but at a different location in 1976.
