Torbay’s Great Place Scheme programme is building momentum and a series of adventurous arts events is helping to put Torbay firmly on the cultural map.
Two events in particular are creating a peak of cultural activity in September, which can only successfully run with the support of volunteers as stewards, helpers and even story-tellers. THE TALE, by internationally renowned arts rpducers, Situaitons, is an exciting new event for explorers of all ages, guiding visitors on a journey of discovery from the streets of Torquay, through hidden coves and historic harbours, to the quarry of Berry Head. New artworks and performances will be revealed during three weekends in September. The INTERNATIONAL AGATHA CHRISTIE FESTIVAL, running from 13-17 September, has expanded into a major platform for new works with guest writers, performers, artists, song, stories and dance celebrating the extraordinary life and legacies of Dame Agatha Christie Mallowan.
Potential Hosts with a few hours to spare this autumn, who would like to get involved with something different, new and exciting can find out more by visiting http://www.torbayculture.org/culture-hosts/ .
