Arts, Crafts & Culture in Devon
When it comes to the arts, there are plenty of opportunites to indulge your creative side, not only are their courses and events, but the county is the home of a number of the UK's favourite artists, musicians and authors. Among Devon's exports are Joss Stone, Chris Martin, Matt Bellamy representing music, Agatha Christie and Charles Kingsley representing literature and Josh Widdocombe, Sue Barker and Tom Daley representing comedy, acting, sports and presenting among others.
With the awe inspiring views, it is now wonder that we're an arty lot here in Devon. Inspired by our beautiful surroundings, we like to paint, sew, sculpt, knit and make ... and show off the end results afterwards!
The cities of Exeter and Plymouth have a representation for having an incredible night life with plenty of live music and cultural events, while you can find theatres, galleries, cinemas and a whole host of small live music venues all over the county.
