AN ADVENTUROUS ARTS EVENT FOR EXPLORERS OF ALL AGES
The Tale unfolds across the stunning landscape of Torbay, South Devon this September.
A unique kind of arts trail, The Tale guides you on a journey of discovery around the coast of Torbay – from the streets of Torquay, through hidden coves and historic harbours of Brixham, to the quarry of Berry Head Nature Reserve.
Along the way you’ll encounter performances & installations from internationally acclaimed artists, created especially for Torbay.
Pull back the curtain on an art deco cinema, closed to the public for 25 years (Britt Hatzius). Immerse yourself in a 360-degree sound installation, deep in a quarry, inspired by the sounds of the ocean (BBC sound artist Chris Watson). End your Tale at sunset, looking out upon a dance performance where the land meets the sea.
Families welcome. Under 16s go free!
A unique collaboration between people & place, The Tale is inspired by the ideas of award-winning writer Philip Hoare, whose boyhood experiences of Torbay shaped his future.
