The Flavel is one of those theatres that has it all, it shows films, live shows and hosts an annual comedy festival. This friendly theatre in Dartmouth is run by the Flavel Centre Trust, and the charity is dedicated to delivering entertainment for everyone. So, if you’re staying in the area you’ll find the latest blockbusters, live broadcasts and a wide variety of performances showing in the centre of the town.
The gallery presents regular exhibitions so there’s something new to see every month, and they vary in style and theme to fit the centre’s ethos of appealing to all. If you visit the gallery during March you may well find a comedy-themed exhibition to coincide with the Dartmouth Comedy Festival, an annual event that attracts comedy’s biggest names to perform in Dartmouth and the Flavel itself.
The Flavel Arts Centre is free to enter, and the Flavel Arts Cafe serves up snacks, hot meals and drinks to visitors all year round. The Flavel is a fully accessible building so all areas are suitable for the disabled or those with mobility needs, and most of the art is available to buy. The Flavel hosts regular workshops and classes for all ages and the cinema offers live screenings, world cinema and all the latest films.
