Great Gorillas on the Loose!

The Great Gorillas are on the loose and 30 life size gorillas have hit the streets along the English Riviera in Paignton, Torquay and Exeter.

Down on Torquay harbour front, where 'Five Minutes to Midnight' is situated, I met up with my Clive Meredith, Practise Director for Wollen Michelmore the South Devon Law Firm who have sponsored my gorilla.
Five Minutes ... is in front of the Pavillion in a great position for watching the world go by and with a perfect view of the English Riviera Big Wheel . Who knows, he may remind people occasionally that it's getting late and they should be getting a taxi home!


The wonderful Babbacombe Model Village in Torquay also has a miniature version of the trail with  some of the gorillas even performing useful or dangerous tasks!

There's plenty of time to follow the gorilla trails as the project continues until October ending with the Great Gorillas Charity Auction at The Palace Theatre Paignton on 6th Nov.


  1. Nice pictures, Jane. Is that your Gorilla at the Archery 'range@? Can't see properly.

  2. Thanks Frances, yes sure is....rather a dangerous place to be, given that they are still loosing their arrows!

  3. Brilliant. What an honour all round.
