The first festival of its kind locally, with over 30 participating venues and 70+ events over 10 days featuring music, visual arts, dance, circus, theatre and more!

A big THANK YOU to everyone involved, whether you performed, hosted, produced, participated, laughed, sang, danced or just generally observed the chaos – you made it!

It was fantastic to see the community come together and celebrate the one of a kind that is Totnes and all the arts and culture it has to offer.
