  • from church bell ringer to the Bude town band
  • from lobster fisher to people opening the lock gates
  • from making local cheeses to the carnival

With so many enticing rhymes to its name, Bude has been described as “the limerick capital of the world”. You are invited to compose a limerick that includes the name Bude (suitable for a family audience). Here is an example of what can be done with it…

There was a young lady from Bude,
who frequently swam in the nude.
“It’ll bring in the tourists, so let’s not be purists,”
said the Mayor – his binoculars glued!

The limerick is considered by many as cheap, tasteless & disposable. But it has attracted not only humourists such as Edward Lear, Lewis Carroll & Ogden Nash but great literary figures, among them Shakespeare, Kipling & Auden.

Good luck!
