Culture is more than a great day out. It shapes the place we call home. It enriches lives on our doorstep and makes Torbay a better place to live, work and visit.

Every day, we think about what culture can do for you and Torbay. We activate ideas and nurture projects. We believe culture has (at least some of) the answers. We're interested in audience attendance figures but even more interested in sustained economic and social impact. You can find out more about how we do this through our projects.

Good things happen when we work together. That’s why 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.”
