Community Touring

Villages in Action enlivens and empowers communities in Devon (East Devon, Mid Devon, South Hams, Teignbridge and West Devon) through engagement with the arts. We bring theatre, music, dance, circus, spoken word, storytelling, puppetry and poetry from around the world to our rural, coastal and market towns. Expect a warm welcome wherever you go!

We are a network of volunteers, community venues and producers committed to improving access to culture by hosting exciting live events and activities. By supporting people to organise their own cultural activity Villages in Action aims to enhance the quality of life for our communities; combatting isolation and encouraging social inclusion. 

Our venues range from small, intimate community halls to larger outdoor spaces, and everything in between. The work we programme varies in scale and we're always on the lookout for new places and partners to join our network.

We are part of the National Rural Touring Forum - a network of thirty similar schemes throughout the UK - and work particularly closely with our neighbours Artsreach, Beaford, Carn To Cove and Take Art.
