At last, some activity in the Arts Centre!

It has not been an idle few months, with lots of preparation going into our productions of The Merry Wives of Windsor and All Is Mended, and our wardrobe supervisor Lindy taking the opportunity to do a massive sort-out of all the costumes. Jez has returned with a smaller, Covid-aware Youth Theatre group, while Sarah is back with Tot's Play, and rehearsals are underway in a major way for the shows. All activities are as Covid-safe as possible, with risk assessments, social distancing, masks and lots of hygiene measures. Our lovely cleaner Sue is back and busy once again.

Meanwhile, most of our activities are moving outside for the summer - Share in the Square started in April and continues every Friday, alternate Saturdays and some Sundays, as well as upcoming tours of Merry Wives to green spaces in Mid Devon and All Is Mended to gardens in the district. Look out for an exciting new Youth Theatre show in August.

Thanks to everyone for your continued support, especially our Friends and Business Partners.

Stay safe, and look after yourself and others.
