Culture is more than a great day out. It shapes the place we call home. It enriches lives. Our mission is to enable the cultural and creative development of Torbay through collaboration, making our home – the English Riviera UNESCO Global Geopark - a better place in which to live, work, learn and visit.

You can find out more about how we do this through our projects.

Torbay Culture staff and board members collaborate with a huge range of partners to make the cultural offer here bigger, better and more visible. Between us, we ensure Torbay's ten-year cultural strategy achieves what it has set out to do and contributes towards a prosperous future for Torbay.

You can meet all members of the board here and read Torbay's cultural strategy here:

“Collaborating with a range of partners and local people, Torbay Culture has developed and delivered projects and activities that are working to make Torbay a great place to live, work, play and visit by promoting health and wellbeing, developing civic pride and making the most of the area’s natural beauty and rich heritage.”
