Exeter Phoenix launches its Summer Season
With another exciting mix of music, performance, art and film, the Exeter Phoenix is set to launch a summer of fun. Alongside a diverse programme of comedy, gigs and creative courses, the Exeter Phoenix will be bringing arts out into the summer sunshine with a fantastic range of outdoor events through the summer months.
Highlights include a week of wild west fun in Rougemont Gardens, as Miracle Theatre bring their rootin’ tootin’ new show The Magnificent Three to the city along with a hoedown of live music.
In August, Exeter’s favourite outdoor cinema event Big Screen In The Park returns to celebrate its fifteenth anniversary with a five-day al-fresco cinema extravaganza. This year’s films see space epic Interstellar take its place alongside a special screening celebrating 20 years of Toy Story, and cult favourites including Ghostbusters, Amelie and The Shining.
Back on the sunny terrace of the Exeter Phoenix, the Ale and Cider Festival features a host of live music acts and DJs, alongside table tennis and a great local ales selection. Other music highlights include foot-stomping rhythms from Youngblood Brass Band, funk and soul from Brother Strut and a trip down south for Scottish folk rockers Trembling Bells.
Spanish-Syrian artist Antonio Marguet exhibits some of his latest work in the Phoenix Gallery through July and August. Working at the boundary of sculpture, installation and photography, Marguet attributes his fascination with sculpting unconventional and often humorous plastic objects to the influence of his father’s bubblegum factory.
