The Babbacombe Theatre is a plucky independent theatre which for much of the year is home to variety shows which feature a lot of home gorwn English Rivier talent. The year is also punctuated by visits of one person shows typically stand up comedians. There are also visiting musical acts and tribute bands.
The theatre is quite quirky and does not have a bar and audience members have typically gone across the road to neighbouring pubs during the interval.
2020 has been a very difficult year for theatres and in order to survive, the Babbacombe theatre has been part of crowd funding efforts.
