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 & 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! #taletorbay

The Tale begins in Torquay (Torquay Museum) and ends in Brixham.
Exact locations of artworks & performances will be revealed at the start of your journey.
 
Experience The Tale across either one full day (Meteor Ticket) or at a more leisurely pace across two days (Wanderer Ticket) in September. Pick your weekend, your start date & time when booking.
 
Weekend One: Fri 8 – Sun 10 September
Weekend Two: Fri 15 – Sun 17 September
