Phoenix 25

Exeter Phoenix is a registered charity. Each year, we must raise over £1.5million to ensure the people of Exeter, Devon and beyond have access to the absolute best the contemporary arts has to offer. We can only do this thanks to your support. When you buy a ticket, eat a meal, take a class or give a donation here, every penny goes back into bringing fun, creativity and culture to this great city.

Celebrating 25 years of Exeter Phoenix

In 2024 we are celebrating 25 years since we first spread our wings, to bring the best cultural experiences to the people of Exeter and the South-West!

Celebrate our 25th Birthday milestone with us by becoming a Friend of Exeter Phoenix for £25!

Our Friends are part of the magic that is Exeter Phoenix. Every donation received is used towards our mission to deliver spellbinding events and festivals, support a thriving creative community, and enrich the lives of local people.

As well as helping to ensure that the next 25 years are filled with wonder and opportunity, our Friends will also be able to get closer to our work, receiving an exclusive welcome pack featuring a limited-edition pin badge and set of postcards, and enjoying quarterly behind-the-scenes newsletters.

Become a Friend for £25 today and help us build a future where creativity can thrive. Thank you for being a part of our journey.
