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. 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 will be hugely damaging for charities like Exeter Phoenix and many other sectors. We’re reliant on our community to provide over 80% of the cost of running Exeter Phoenix each year. After seeing several members of our community reaching out to ask how they can help, we have provided a number of suggestions for how you can support Exeter Phoenix here >>
