A Summer of Fun at Exeter Phoenix

Published May 29, 2014

We’re delighted to announce a programme of events this summer with something for everyone. As always, our July to August season has an exciting mix of music, performance, art and film.

Music highlights include the legendary Ian McLagan of The Small Faces and The Faces, a special Chris Difford and Glen Tilbrook show and the always-entertaining Almost The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band. Our Ale and Cider Festival returns and will feature a host of live music acts and DJs, whilst performance wise, we have a special series of Edinburgh Fringe previews in July. First Chance Fringe will feature a series of double bill evenings with up and coming comedians showcasing their newest work.



Rachel Busby, the winner of the Exeter Contemporary Open 2013 Main Award, returns to exhibit in our Phoenix Gallery alongside David Webb. Their show Hinterland will feature new paintings that share reference to personal histories and the powerful agency of objects and places.


Our Monday night films continue to bring the best of independent and foreign cinema to Exeter, and Big Screen in the Park, the annual feast of film under the stars, returns. The best way to watch films, this year’s Big Screen lineup is The Lego Movie, Rush, Gravity and The Life Aquatic with Steve Zizzou (see our new brochure’s front cover).  As The Lego Movie would say – everything is awesome!


We have a range of regular and new courses, workshops and digital learning opportunities as well as our monthly Family Saturday events that are full of fun, creative, family activities.


Finally, our Café Bar will have a new summer menu and a selection of excellent new Craft Beers.  We’ll have special screenings for the World Cup and you can enjoy great food, drink and sunshine on our open-air terrace.
