Performances, shows, and events

Tickets for this event are all £5, and can be booked here.

Ashburton’s Toby Strong will be talking about his work as an Emmy and Bafta award-winning Director of Photography. Toby specialises in wildlife and documentary cinematography, and will illustrate his presentation with some of his best clips. He will also bring along some examples of the equipment he uses, such as drones, buggies, cranes, sliders, gimbles, plus amazing cameras.

“My driving passion is to show people the beauty everywhere in this world. Beauty to celebrate…and our duty is to preserve and protect it. I believe there is no separation between the animal and human kingdoms; we are all the same. If we can just see through our subjects’ eyes, we can tell their story, authentically and with respect.”

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

Sat 15 May: From Step 3 of the UK government’s ‘roadmap’, which comes into force on Monday 17 May 2021, we are able to open to a public audience. For all events from 17 May, until further changes are announced:

  • The windows and doors of the venue will be open, allowing fresh air to be constantly moving through. This may mean that the ambient temperature is similar to outdoors, and audience members should dress accordingly.
  • All audiences will be seated in socially-distanced bubbles. Please stay seated as much as possible while inside the building.
  • Hand sanitiser will be available as well as soap and water in the toilets; please use these frequently.
  • Bar service at the Arts Centre is carried out by volunteers. If they are available at any event, they will take orders at your seat, and bring drinks to you.
  • All members of the audience must wear a facemask while indoors, except if medically exempt, or when eating or drinking. Our experience is that this is one of the things most important for making some (perhaps more vulnerable) members of the audience feel safe to attend concerts. Whatever your opinion of the efficacy of facemasks in preventing the spread of the virus, please help to reassure others, and showing that you’re thinking of them, by complying with this.
  • There are posters inside the building showing the QR code that’s connected to the NHS Track and Trace app – please use this. We will also keep a record of all ticket buyers for the required period, and pass this on to the NHS or Devon Public Health if requested.
