Spotlight on Culture

Thursday 17th December 10:30am, Palace Theatre, Paignton, Book Tickets
Price: Donation

You’re invited to celebrate Torbay’s rich and vibrant cultural heritage, and the Palace Theatre’s inspirational journey, with a day packed full with celebrations and cheer.

In August 2020, Jazz Hands CIC, who operate the Palace Theatre, were successful in joining the ranks of #SmallBiz100, a national campaign highlighting some of the UK’s most inspiring small businesses; 100 small businesses are celebrated in the 100 days building up to Small Business Saturday (5 December 2020) and the 23 November is Jazz Hands’ day to shine.

As part of Torbay Culture’s response and recovery work, they were awarded emergency response funding from the Arts Council to support local creative practitioners, cultural places and communities through a project called Create to Recover. This event will showcase many of the artists and practitioners who were part of create to recover, particularly John Tomkins who collaborated with members of the Torquay Museum Society (TMS) to create 3 documentary films celebrating the heritage of Torbay.
