Your guide to What's On this weekend

Your essential guide to What’s On in and around Exeter this weekend (23-25 February).


Soldier On
Friday, Exeter Northcott Theatre
What happens when a company of ex-soldiers becomes a company of actors? A theatrical band of brothers. Although it’s not a cure all, the bonding, the humour, the theatre of war helps to put them back together again - as a company of veterans and actors rehearse a play about a company of veterans and actors. Although worlds apart they begin to realise there are more similarities between military life and the theatre than they bargained for, building a powerful new world of their own. This is a heart warming story about surviving the forces and PTSD and what happens when you leave the military ‘family”.  https://exeternorthcott.co.uk/

Twelfth Night
Friday & Saturday, Barnfield Theatre, Exeter
Set twelve days after Christmas, perhaps the party has gone on too long? Perhaps the guests are a little hungover? Perhaps they’ve left it a little late to find true love?   Director Ian Berry promises, ‘This stellar cast brings so much comic energy and fizz it will feel like Christmas has come again!” http://www.barnfieldtheatre.org.uk

Adam Hess & Glenn Moore
Sunday, 8pm, Exeter Phoenix
A double bill of comedy from Edinburgh Comedy Award nominated Adam Hess and the relentlessly silly Glenn Moore. Expect a high quality of gags-per-minute from these up-and-coming comedians. Tickets £13. http://www.exeterphoenix.org.uk


The Stones
Friday, Exmouth Pavilion
The Stones are the UK’s No.1 and most authentic tribute to The Rolling Stones, bringing all the hits and timeless Rolling Stones tracks to the big stage - from ‘Satisfaction’ and ‘Jumping Jack Flash’, to ‘Ruby Tuesday’, ‘Start Me Up’ and ‘Brown Sugar’ - the Greatest Tribute Band in the World pays tribute to the World’s Greatest Rock and Roll Band. http://www.exmouthpavilion.co.uk

Keltia World Music
Saturday, 8pm, Clifford Room, Barnfield Theatre, Exeter
The six musicians that make up Keltia have come from different musical backgrounds, but all share a love of the music and mystery that hails from the Celtic lands. This evening will be a celebration of songs, tunes and stories of magic, love and myth from and about the Celtic worlds from these shores and way beyond.  As the darkness of winter fades, this will be an evening to herald the coming light and spring. Tickets £8 (£6).  www.barnfieldtheatre.org.uk

Branded: Fashion, femininity and the right to vote
Killerton House, Broadclyst, Exeter
To mark 100 years since some women got the right to vote, this exhibition reflects the timeline of the campaign for women’s suffrage from 1866 until 1928 through the changing styles of fashion. The exhibition highlights the relationship between politics and dress and how this was exploited by the campaigners and supporters of women’s suffrage. Groups involved in the campaign used design and colour to identify themselves and to raise awareness and support for their cause. The exhibition runs until 4 November and entry is free, but normal admission charges apply for the venue. https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/killerton

Dartmoor’s Hidden Depths
Dartmoor National Park Visitor Centre, Princetown
A new exhibition by two Dartmoor based artists, Dave Peake and Rosemary Bonney focusing on the influence of water on the Dartmoor landscape as well as providing a glimpse of what lies beneath!

Exeter City Council is looking for an Arts & Events Manager

Posted by Belinda Dillon on February 12, 2018 at 15:38 0 Comments

Culture in Exeter is thriving – but the ambition of the city means it is yearning for more. 

Providing ‘good things to see and do’ for residents and visitors is at the heart of Exeter City Council, its priorities and aspirations. 

From Radio 1’s Big Weekend over two days with 50,000 people, to hosting city wide events as part of the Rugby World Cup, Exeter punches above its weight. 

Now we are looking for a talented arts and events expert to take things to another level. 

The Arts and Events Manager will enhance Exeter’s role as a regional cultural capital and deliver world class projects, together with nurturing and supporting arts organisations and professionals in Exeter.

Dreadnought South West to launch Rebellious Sounds Archive in Exeter

Posted by Carmen Talbot on February 9, 2018 at 14:46 0 Comments

The Rebellious Sounds Archive is a Heritage Lottery Funded project created and undertaken by Dreadnought South West to create the first community archive collection of oral histories about the activism of women in the South West. In the centenary year of the very first votes by women, we hope that the contemporary archive of stories will illuminate and inspire people to find out about their heritage and possible connections to the women’s suffrage campaign from 100 years ago. This project presents an opportunity to recognise how women’s suffrage has acted as inspiration for contemporary women’s activism.

On Wednesday 14th February, Dreadnought South West will be launching their Rebellious Sounds Archive Listening Booth installation at Exeter Phoenix. The Listening Booth is a touring exhibition space that houses oral histories of women's activism in the South West. The booth will then be…
