Located on the Exeter University campus. After 6pm and weekends free parking. Other times easy to get bus D from city centre or even walk for 20-25 min. Intimate venue. Cheapest seats give great views. Varied programmes.Refreshments basic but fine!

Don’t eat here. Instead, enjoy the exceptional performance without a mouthful of salt. We were the only two people in the building who were eating that evening. The food was overpriced and barely edible (honestly, I’m not exaggerating). The staff are lovely. The performance was...More

Really enjoyed watching the panto. The cast were really good fun and the singing and dancing were great. The young chorus were excellent to watch too. Favourite parts were the brilliant beanstalk and giant. It’s a great fun show for all the family at Christmas,...More

I once again loved the Northcott Panto this year. My friend took me and I was again wowed by the performance. I loved singing along, the giant was a bit scary but in a good way and I really loved the “thank you very much”...More
