Welcome to Villages in Action

Community Development through the Arts

Villages in Action (VIA) is a rural touring scheme based in Crediton, Devon that covers five of the rural Districts of Devon.  We help to bring top quality professional performances and workshops at affordable prices to communities through a network of local volunteer promoters.

We are supported by District Councils, including West Devon, East Devon and Teignbridge, as well as Devon County Council and Arts Council England.
