Our Vision

Our vision is to create a 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 historic building, offering a 100 seat cinema theatre, art gallery and artists studios, and a high-quality cafe bar 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.

This is a community project owned by 322 shareholders and, along the with support of donors, more than 500 people are stakeholders in this project.

Huge thanks go to our Founder Members, shareholders and those that have donated over £100.
