Why Choose Totnes?
The beautiful market town in Devon is a wonderful choice to see a music event for a number of reasons. The area attracts a rich variety of musicians and performers. It is one of the best places to see unique performances that would not necessarily play in cities.
Totnes is also home to some of the most intimate venues in the South West. Musicians have recognised this and often build their set atmosphere around these stages.
