Exmouth 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 part of this community and have further advantages such as joining the conversations and putting on your own posts yourself.
