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 join the conversations and put 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 contact@exmoutharts.co.uk.

News: Tidelines - and the Exe Estuary Box

What do we want and need to know about our Exe estuary and coast (past, present, future)? How can we celebrate and learn more together about our unique location? How can we be active in responding in our communities and as individuals to ongoing changes to our environment and climate? This is a different sort of project. It brings together knowledge about science, arts, craft, history, place and nature and makes vibrant connections between these different ways of experiencing and understanding the world. the Tidelines website is at https://tidelines.uk/ .

Guide to arts programmes and performances on TV

Why not scan the TV programmes schedule to see what performances and arts programmes are on the main TV Channels (also available online on catch-up TV, usually for a month, so no need to watch live). 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!
