What We Do

Bang in the heart of the city centre, Exeter Phoenix is a vibrant, world-class multi-artform venue.  We are home to several art galleries, a theatre, gig spaces, art studios, dance studios, a cinema, film production resources and more, all centred around a buzzing Café Bar. Each year we host hundreds of events and artistic activity spanning contemporary art, live music, DJs, cinema, theatre, dance, comedy, talks, creative courses, family events and everything in between.

As well as hosting hundreds of events each year, we nurture a thriving arts scene through our Creative Hub, which supports artists, musicians, theatre companies and filmmakers at every stage of their career. Through the Creative Hub, Exeter Phoenix has helped launch the careers of award-winning filmmakers, developed quality work that has gone on to tour nationally, and provided a support network for those looking to embark on creative endeavours for the first time.

Summer Refurbishment Project

This summer we’re making some big improvements to our beautiful building. The refurbishment project will see an expansion of the main gallery spaces, the installation of a glass vestibule to the front of the building and improvements to the visitor facilities. Please excuse our appearance as we make these improvements, but rest assured we are open as usual and look forward to welcoming you into the building as ever. 

Our main entrance is currently closed for refurbishment. We are open as usual, but please follow the signs to access the side entrance. 

What’s On – Events At Exeter Phoenix

In our live events 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 solar-powered cinema Studio 74, presents an inspiring regular programme of first rate independent film alongside eye-opening documentaries, festivals and exciting immersive cinema events.

Creative Hub – Connecting Creative People At Exeter Phoenix

The Creative Hub is the umbrella name for all the things Exeter Phoenix does to nurture a thriving arts and culture scene besides putting on events. We provide networking, advice and commission opportunities for creatives working in any artform, at any level.

Through the Creative Hub, Exeter Phoenix has helped launch the careers of award-winning filmmakers, developed quality work with companies who have gone on to tour nationally, and provided a shoulder to lean on for those looking to embark on creative endeavours for the first time.

Charity

Exeter Phoenix is a registered charity supporting creativity and the arts in the South West and you make it happen. Around 80% of the funds needed to run all of our activities come from our lovely visitors; this means for every ten workshops, classes, gigs or films you see here, eight of them happen because of you. Without your support, creativity couldn’t happen here. 

 You make this happen. The majority of our funding comes from our visitors, which means every time you see something here, hire a room, give a donation or have a drink in our café/bar, you’re helping to train and develop the artists of tomorrow. You can help make Exeter Phoenix the best it can be.
