Welcome to Bovey Paradiso

Our vision is to create a lively community arts and entertainment centre in Bovey Tracey. The restored Tudor building at the top end of Fore Street, now has a new lease of life, and on the ground floor includes an art gallery and toilet, both of which are wheelchair accessible. Please contact us regarding large powered wheelchairs to check accessibility. There is also a meeting room seating up to eleven people and for more detail on this select top menu ‘Art Gallery’, and select ‘Meeting room hire’. On the first floor there are four studios let to local artists. Please come along and visit our gallery, exhibitions change approximately monthly. You can also contact us on any subject using the ‘Contact us’ form by selecting it on the top menu.

Following our second community share offer which raised over £100,000, and with the grants we have obtained, we have now completed the development of phase 2 of the project. This phase of the development is a well-equipped kitchen and high-quality café restaurant area now open in the gallery. Please keep watching out for Newsletter updates advising project progress.

When funding is available, café restaurant space will be expanded and the the final phase of development will be a cinema / theatre with 92 seats, for more detail select top menu ‘About us’ and select ‘Plans’.
