New Music Venue for Devon Likely

Devon hills could soon be alive with the sound of music.

A £58 million pound music, arts and literary centre's planned for the former Seale Hayne College.

The 95 acre site's been bought by the Dame Hannah Rogers Trust, a charity that cares for and educates severely disabled children and young adults.

A planning application's been submitted to Teignbridge District Council which includes new buildings and performance spaces, the gem of which is a 5,000 seating Amphitheatre. 

It's hoped the quality of live music, comedy and theatrical works will make it a leading venue in the South West and give people here facilities as good as London's. 

The charity describes it as a 'bold' plan.  And one which could create 500 new jobs.

Any profit generated from commercial activities at Seale Hayne will be fed straight back to Dame Hannah Rogers Trust to help fund the charity work.
