Backstage in Gandy Street

Did you know Exeter Phoenix started life as part of the University? Do you have memories of us as Exeter & Devon Arts Centre? Exeter Phoenix is delighted to open its doors to take part in Heritage Open Days 2021.

Throughout the week, join us for free tours which will offer visitors a rare opportunity to explore behind-the-scenes areas of a multi-arts venue, as well as giving an insight into the historic uses of the building and a chance to explore some of the remaining original features. As well as free tours, there will be the chance to look at pictures from our archives and see the original building plans for the site and read more information about Exeter Phoenix’s history.

New for 2021 – see behind the scenes at our new bar around the corner in Gandy Street – The Mermaid. Learn about the past life of this stunning listed building and its hidden secrets.
