Red Herring is a theatre company, specialising in outdoor, interactive performance.

We are based in Bideford, North Devon.

We believe that bringing people together to experience familiar places in unfamiliar ways, can have a transformative impact on communities, strengthen local connections and reduce loneliness. And where people are not able to join us outdoors, we hope to bring a bit of the outdoors in to them.

We believe that play can have a transformative impact on people’s lives, stimulating creativity and happiness, whatever our age. We provide opportunities for members of the public to take part – through workshops, in performances and as actively engaged audience members.


Red Herring is well recognised in the Outdoor Arts Sector. We have received commissions from the Without Walls Consortium, Winchester Hat Fair, Arts Fresco Market Harborough and Magnetic Events and funding from Arts Council England, The Heritage Lottery Fund and Awards for All. The Directors are both on the Steering Committee of the National Association of Street Artists.
