Our vision is to create a lively community cinema, theatre, arts and entertainment centre in Bovey Tracey. Located at the top end of Fore Street, the King of Prussia Arts Centre will give a new lease of life to this 16th century building, offering an art gallery and four artists' studios, a cinema theatre with almost 100 seats, a cafe bar and a high-quality restaurant.

We will work with the Dartmoor Whisky Distillery and The Bell Inn to create a new leisure and cultural hub for the community, helping to rejuvenate the top end of Fore Street.

Bovey Tracey Paradiso Arts Ltd. [see page footer] is a community project owned by 322 shareholders - including donors more than 500 people in our community are stakeholders.

Huge thanks go to our shareholders, donors and those who are volunteering time and effort to make this project possible.
