This Ragged Edge: Book launch

This Ragged Edge is the story of a journey by three artists and friends between Salcombe and Dartmouth in 2018. Seeking out secluded coves, shipwrecks and wind ravaged headlands they end up walking through the heart of an Arctic storm. Their resulting book is described by nature writer Miriam Darlington as, ‘The story of five days exploration into the stark beauty and dreamlike possibility of coastline.’

Join the authors, Jamie Grant, Marcus Gladstone-Noble and James Richardson as they launch their book that celebrates Devon’s incredible coastline and gives a unique perspective on its many moods.

This Ragged Edge will be available to buy for the first time at the event and the authors will be offering an evening of projected imagery, storytelling and poetry.

There will also be drinks, snacks and live music.

Please book a free ticket for guaranteed admission.

Pandemic policies. This information will be updated as things change.

Update: April 2022

  • Face masks: In the Main Hall, on the ground floor, these are recommended at all times, but are optional. Anyone who sits upstairs in the balcony MUST wear a face mask – with NO exceptions (not even those who are exempt). This is to allow people who are clinically vulnerable to have a place to sit where seats are naturally separated, so: (a) to provide a place for people who want to be as distanced as possible from others, and with anyone nearby wearing a mask; (b) as virus particles when airborne are generally heavier than air, this helps to mitigate the risk of transmission from people sitting in the balcony to audience members below.
  • The windows and doors of the venue will be open, allowing fresh air to be constantly moving through. Although we have heating, this might mean that the ambient temperature is a little cooler than some might like, and audience members should dress accordingly.
  • Please, if you can, take a Lateral Flow test before coming to the Arts Centre, and if this is positive, don’t come. These tests aim to pick up anyone who is infectious at the moment of testing, so please take the test as late as possible on the same day before coming to the Arts Centre. If you test positive, a refund or transfer of your ticket to another event can be arranged, if you let us know before the start of the event, by emailing
