Established in 2017, The Shorely is the insider’s guide to Torbay, South Devon.

We feature the unmissable things to go see and do, the creative happenings and the artists and makers that make it happen. This is arts, crafts, dance, design, exhibitions, film, literature, museums, music, performance, spoken word, theatre and the great outdoors. Culture makes Torbay a better place to live, work. It matters to you and it matters to us.

Editorial decisions and content are made independently by a small team of South Devon locals at a studio in Torquay. We’re a mix of both emerging talent combined with experienced creatives.

Together, we’ve delivered 92 stories via The Shorely with 70 of these being video features. We use our website and social channels (YouTube, Facebook, twitter, instagram) to deliver fresh content to our online audiences. Our social media reach is now at 1.1 million with over 225,000 video views.

We also welcome freelance contributors with open arms. If you’re a writer, blogger, vlogger, social influencer, photographer, videographer, we’d love to hear from you. Equally if you have an idea for a feature or want to submit your event, venue, work for consideration, please do get in-touch using the form here.
