Become a Friend

Beaford Arts is a charity supported by Arts Council England and the Dartington North Devon Foundation. We are England’s longest running rural arts organisation and we welcome any support you can give to enable us to continue supporting community life across rural North Devon in partnership with our region-wide network of volunteers.

Our Friends make a regular contribution of £10 or more annually. As a thank you you’ll receive an annual report and be invited to special events.

If you would like to become a Friend, please call Jane Woodman on 01769 572 573 or email jane(at)


Beaford Arts is always looking for local north Devon people to become our volunteer community partners, known as promoters, to enable us to bring professional rural touring artists to new communities across the north Devon Biosphere area. With our support, promoters run extraordinary events in their community spaces. If you would like to know more please contact Claire Ayres, our Communities Manager, at claire(at)

Another way to volunteer is to become involved in our Archive projects. If you would like to help, please contact Kathryn Burrell on kathryn(at)
