And yes, there’s popcorn. You can also find several small art galleries in Barnstaple. The talent of the local artists is incredible.

Live music or something quieter?

Barnstaple has a young and active contemporary music scene, thanks in part to the excellent music-related degrees taught by the local college. There’s a usually a gig on somewhere in town most nights of the week. Looking for something a little quieter? Not a problem. Learn something new at The Museum of Barnstaple & North Devon or visit Barnstaple Library. It has a huge selection of books and plenty of spare computers and workspace. There’s free wireless internet too. Ideal.
