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.

Why Your Support Matters

Your support is the reason Exeter Phoenix can provide:

  • Free access to our art galleries
    Making contemporary work from some of the best local, national and international artists accessible to everyone in Exeter and beyond.
  • Free workshops and classes for young people
    We believe that every young person – no matter what their background – should have the opportunity to learn new skills and harness their talent.
  • Artist development and support
    Each year artists, filmmakers, musicians and theatre companies at all levels are supported by Exeter Phoenix through our commission, training and advice schemes. Your support is the reason we can nurture a thriving arts scene and develop the artists of tomorrow.
  • Access for all
    We want Exeter Phoenix to be a welcoming, accessible place to everyone. Your support will help to improve building facilities for patrons with disabilities, support us in programming an increasing number of BSL interpreted, relaxed and audio described events, and improve access throughout the building and our programme.
