Join us to celebrate and experience some of today’s best queer arts along with some timeless classics. Featuring local, national and international artists, A Dartington Outing includes exhibitions, live performance and music, a film programme, and social and family gatherings.

From a cutting edge virtual reality trip inside an HIV-positive man’s body, to a live lesbian drawing show, a rainbow tea party and a critically acclaimed turn through the tunes of the great Noel Coward, we hope there is something for everyone, whomever they love.

Woven into our Dartington past and present, and that of our wider society and culture, are the lives of a host of LGBTQ people, families and communities – lives that have ranged, and still do, from open and celebrated to hidden or vilified.

Part of a raft of celebrations and commemorations across the UK, A Dartington Outing marks the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Sexual Offences Act. This specially curated programme considers what it achieved, what it didn’t – and where next?
