We connect artists and communities with North Devon finding entertaining and extraordinary ways to explore our land, lives and future. 



We work with local promoters to present high quality arts events in rural north Devon. Whether it’s contemporary theatre, music or dance, we ensure the match is right for the community and have a built up a loyal audience established over 50 years working in the region. Moving, enthralling, laugh-out-loud funny – live events are a unique experience every time.


The Beaford Archive, a photographic record of people in rural North Devon, contains more than 80,000 images by James Ravilious and Roger Deakins.  According to the Royal Photographic Society, it is “...a unique body of work, unparalleled, at least in this country, for its scale and quality”. 


Rural north Devon is a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve - part of a global network of special places inspiring a positive future by connecting people and nature. As proud partners of the Biosphere Reserve we are working with communities to raise awareness of the designation and promote action through projects such as Plastic Free North Devon.
