  1. A New Look For Exeter Phoenix

    Leave a Comment


    It's been over a year in the making, but we are delighted to share the new and improved Exeter Phoenix website! We’ve been working away at this over lockdown with the fantastic folks at Web Wise Media to bring you a smoother and more enjoyable experience when visiting us online.

    There are three main areas of the website for you to explore and get to know us better:

    • What's on – find out about the cultural goings on taking place under our roof. From crafting to cinema, gigs to galleries, comedy to courses, explore our programme.
    • About us – learn more about what we do and how we do it. Meet the team, get in touch and find out how you can support the arts in Exeter.
    • Get involved – delve into Exeter's creative scene. Read about creative news and opportunities, find out more about joining our army of volunteer stewards, learn about the work we do to support artists, and read about current creative projects.

    We’d love to hear what you think about the new site! You can let us know by sending a message via our website's contact form.

    The new website also showcases lots of work of our new in-house designer/illustrator extraordinaire Darren Shaddick. Be sure to check out more of his work over on his Instagram.

    Thanks again to Web Wise Media for all that they've done for us this past year!

  2. Support Exeter Phoenix: Buy A T-Shirt

    Leave a Comment

    Do you want to show your support for your local arts venue at this challenging time? Grab yourself one of our brand new t-shirts and wear your support for Exeter Phoenix with pride!

    Over the last couple of months, would you usually have spent £20 on gig tickets, a round of drinks, cinema trips, classes and workshops, a night at the theatre or any of the other activities that go on under our roof? If so, please consider showing your support for the arts you have been missing by buying a t-shirt today. Supporting your local venue has never been more vital. 

    These tees are perfect for:  

    • Gig going 
    • Theatre trips 
    • Creative workshops  
    • Cinema trips 
    • Reading your book in a café  
    • Grabbing a pint with friends 
    • Taking in an exhibition 
    • Hanging out at a film festival 

    …And it just so happens you can do all of these things under our roof!  

    These t-shirts are lovingly designed by our in-house designer and locally printed in our building by Double Elephant Print Workshop.

    The t-shirts will help to raise vital funds to support Exeter Phoenix during this extremely challenging time for the arts. Our income is mostly reliant on events where big groups of people have fun together, so as you can imagine, the lockdown and social distancing has hit us hard. Your support will help to ensure we are here to keep culture thriving in Exeter when we reopen our doors on the other side of this. 


    Scroll through our ‘merchandise’ browser to find the different sizes of T-shirts. T-shirts cost £20, plus £2.50 postage and packaging. See the full design of the t-shirt at the bottom of the page.

    Printed by our friends at Double Elephant Print Workshop.
