Exmouth Community Arts
Exmouth Community Arts....promoting the performing and visual arts for the benefit of the community
Welcome to your online guide to art, music, theatre and comedy, literature, poetry, film and dance in Exmouth. We feature details of organisations and groups involved in the arts and cultural activities in Exmouth, details of venues in Exmouth, a links section for further information, plus special features .
We now have our own Facebook Group - https://www.facebook.com/groups/exmoutharts/. Please take a look! This has a selection of topical arts-related items and news about arts events coming up in Exmouth, and something new is usually posted every day. It's a public group so open to all, and you don't need to be on Facebook to see it. But please join it if you can so that you can be a pert of this community and have further advantages such as joining the conversations and putting on your own posts yourself.
If you would like to add any organisations or venues that we may have left out, or feature any events that are being held, or if you want to help, please post something on our Facebook Group or email me, John Hunt, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Details of these programmes are on EPG (Electronic Programme Guide) on your TV, or on the websites or apps of the broadcasters (e.g. https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer), or in listings magazines such as the Radio Times (https://www.radiotimes.com/tv/tv-listings/).
Plus, of course, there are hundreds of films on many TV channels!
If there is nothing on live right now, you can always take a look at the BBC Arts website for some inspiration (and scroll down to the bottom of its webpage for yet more links) - https://www.bbc.co.uk/arts. To listen to or watch something on the BBC, go to https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds or https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer (or the BBC Sounds or BBC iPlayer app on your tablet or phone) and type "Arts" in the search engine box.
