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

This is arts, creativity and culture. This is the unmissable things to go see and do in Brixham, Paignton and Torquay. This is the artists, designers and makers of South Devon. This is arts, crafts, dance, design, exhibitions, film, literature, museums, music, performance, spoken word, sports and theatre set across the English Riviera UNESCO Global Geopark.

The Shorely is made by a team of South Devon locals at a studio in Torquay. We’re a mix of both emerging talent and experienced creatives. We’re part of Torbay Culture and Torbay’s Great Place Scheme: a pilot scheme funded by Arts Council England and the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
