About Us


Bang in the heart of the city, Exeter Phoenix is the South West’s foremost multi-artform venue. In our building you’ll find several art galleries, a large auditorium for gigs and theatre, a cinema, a filmmaking hub complete with editing suites, artist studios, a radio station, sound recording studios run by Sound Gallery CIC and a print workshop all centred around a friendly café bar serving delicious locally sourced food and drink.


With hundreds of events programmed each year, spanning music, art, film, theatre and comedy as well as a whole host of learning activities, Exeter Phoenix is a vibrant venue proud of its diversity and revelling in its eclectic buzz. In our programme you’ll find award-winning work by internationally renowned artists alongside new work by local creatives. We like to develop new talent – giving the artists we work with the tools to experiment, take risks and realise their best ideas – and we love it when our audience can say they saw great work here first.

Our new independent screening space, Studio 74 launched in October 2015 and presents an inspiring regular programme of first rate alternative film and the latest art house releases, alongside festivals and exciting immersive film events. Whether it’s to engross yourself in a good story or catch an eye-opening documentary, we invite you to come and give Exeter’s new solar powered cinema a go.


The Creative Hub is the umbrella name for all the things Exeter Phoenix does to nurture the city’s arts scene besides putting on events. We offer everything from artist support and advice, training, creative opportunities and networking socials, and we cover all art forms, from filmmaking to visual art, theatre and music. Whether you’re already an artist, or simply someone who wants to hang out with likeminded people, the Creative Hub is a great way of keeping connected.

Whether you want to learn a new skill, spark new ideas or simply wish to be entertained, we hope you can join us at Exeter Phoenix soon.
