A FREE community hub of drop in activities, workshops and diversity-themed social events.

We provide a warm, welcoming social space in the centre of town where people can meet and socialise, building friendships and networks within the community. Our events are free and open to everyone across Northern Devon

Equipped with tea and coffee making facilities, internet access and comfortable seating, our Sunrise centre is a great way of meeting new people in a safe, friendly environment and connecting with our Sunrise community.

We host cultural events and Diversity awareness activities for the North Devon Community.

We want to celebrate how human individuality enriches our community. Please come and meet your local community and make new friends.

Throughout the year we organized different activities:

World Food Day, Christmas and Wintertime, International Women’s Day, LGBT+ history month, with fundraising music, performance and dance shows and talks from well-known speakers such as Satish Kumar and James Wharton (amongst recent guests).
