Adopt A Seat 

Cheer Up A Chair

We’re looking for Exeter Phoenix’s biggest supporters to do something amazing and adopt one of the brand new seats in our auditorium to keep creativity thriving in Exeter. You can see a list of the amazing people that have so far adopted a seat here >>


Every day, Exeter Phoenix brings vibrant cultural activity to this great city – theatre, dance, music, comedy, film and exhibitions and everything in between. We provide training and support to artists. We’re a place to learn new skills or rediscover your flair. You can come here to meet with old friends and make new ones.

But we are only here thanks to you. Around 80% of what goes on here can only happen because of the people who come to have fun, take part, learn and enjoy. Every ticket you buy, coffee you drink or donation you give goes towards ensuring the people of Exeter and Devon can continue to have incredible art nearby.

By Adopting a Seat, you will be a part of our future by giving much-needed funds. You can keep art thriving in this great city – and it will show that you chair.

‘Exeter Phoenix is quite simply one of my favourite places in Exeter, whether for music, stand-up, theatre, a film or just to enjoy a coffee with a friend. Supporting this special place was a no-brainer for me – I want the Phoenix to thrive and continue to be everything it already is and more.’ 
– Anna Ingram, Adopter
