Bang in the heart of the city, Exeter Phoenix is the South West's foremost multi-artform venue. With hundreds of events programmed each year, spanning music, art, film, theatre and comedy as well as a whole host of learning activities, we are housed in a vibrant venue proud of its diversity and revelling in its eclectic buzz. In our building you'll find several art galleries, a large auditorium for gigs and film, a digital 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 cafe bar serving delicious locally sourced food and drink. 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. 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.

We were very grateful to the theatre for having a reserve list for a sold-out concert; then phoning us when tickets became available. We greatly enjoyed the concert. Also good to see the bar was serving a choice of ales and good pre-show light meals.
