Our mission is to contribute to a city where a rich cultural life enriches the experience of everyone living, working in & visiting Exeter.
The following is a message and opportunity from the National Trust team at Castle Drogo:

Message from Exter City Council regarding proposals for City Council Arts & Events.
The following is a message from Victoria Hatfield, Economy & Enterprise Manager, inviting comment from ECP members:
Val Wilson, Exeter City Council's City Arts & Events Manager is retiring at the end of March 2018, which will be a great loss to the City Council and especially Exeter.

Val’s retirement is providing Exeter City Council with an opportunity to re-look at how we deliver / manage / co-ordinate arts, culture and events across the city. The proposal, which would be implemented March 2018 is:
