In response to the developing coronavirus situation in the UK, Exeter Phoenix is currently closed to the public. This is a temporary measure and we are taking this on a month-by-month basis. No events will be taking place during March, and the vast majority of events will be rescheduled for later in the year. We are following government advice and acting in the best interests of our visitors and staff.

Unprecedented closures like this with no confirmed government support will be hugely damaging for charities like Exeter Phoenix and many other sectors. If you are in a position to consider making a donation HERE, we would be extremely grateful.

Based on Peter Carey’s Booker Prize winning novel, Justin Kurzel’s True History Of The Kelly Gang shatters the mythology of the notorious icon to reveal the essence behind the life of Ned Kelly. 

Hero to some, outlaw to others, Kelly (George MacKay) throws a long shadow over a specific period of Australian history. Spanning the younger years of Ned’s life to the time leading up to his death, the film explores the story behind this legendary historical figure. Nurtured by the notorious bushranger Harry Power (Russell Crowe) and fuelled by the unfair arrest of his mother (Essie Davis), Ned Kelly recruits a wild bunch of warriors to plot a campaign of anarchy and rebellion that will grip the entire country.

Youth and tragedy collide in the Kelly Gang, and at the beating heart of this tale is the fractured and powerful love story between a mother and son.
