It all happens in Barnstaple, centred around the Queen's Theatre in Boutport Street.

The Queen's Theatre houses 3 venues - studio@QT, gallery@QT, Room At The Top - and the central box-office.

Around the corner, in Paternoster Row, is St Anne's Arts & Community Centre and at the top of Boutport Street, about 4 minutes walk from the Queen's Theatre, is The Baptist Hall.

There are also productions that takes place in less formal settings. And you will be able to watch 5 minute 'tasters' at the Barnstaple Coffee Shop.
