Brixham Arts & Theatre SocietyBrixham Arts & Theatre Society Contact: Olive Farnham
Our mission is to support and encourage artistic endeavour in the Brixham peninsula.

- Promoting artistic aspirations
- Developing artistic opportunities for all generations
- Creating arts, theatre and community hubs in Brixham
BATS is operated on a purely voluntary basis, by the BATS Members, with professional technicians contracted as required. All surplus funds are used to enhance the professional programmes available and specific artistic projects, including fostering new writing and creation, in the Brixham area.
BATS operated Brixham Theatre from September 2013 to May 2018, when the ever-increasing overheads, including a 50% increase in rent, and diminishing hirings made the theatre unviable and the BATS Board handed back the lease under the break clause.
For the future, BATS will continue to support exciting new projects that advance the arts and culture in Brixham and the surrounding area. This will mean that, on occasions, BATS will still be staging professional arts events at a variety of venues around Torbay.
