What We Do

Villages in Action was established to enliven and empower communities in Devon through engagement with the arts. We bring theatre, music, dance, circus, spoken word, storytelling,  puppetry and poetry from around the world to village halls, churches and community spaces. Expect cups of tea, homemade cakes and a warm welcome wherever you go!

By supporting people to organise their own cultural activity Villages in Action aims to enhance the quality of life for all members of our communities; combatting isolation and encouraging social inclusion.

Villages in Action is a registered charity and governed by a board of unpaid trustees, currently receiving funds from Arts Council England, East Devon District Council and Teignbridge District Council, with recent project funding from Devon County Council.
