After three years of closure due to a major building programme on the University of Exeter's Streatham Campus, the Exeter Great Hall has reopened and will host rock and pop concerts by world-class artists this autumn.
The largest concert hall west of Bristol, the Exeter Great Hall has an illustrious history of staging concerts by music legends such as Bob Marley and Pink Floyd and more recently, Blur, The Arctic Monkeys, Radiohead and Keane, have all played at the 1800 capacity venue based on the campus.
Patrick Cunningham, Music Programmer and Director at Exeter Phoenix said:
'The re-opening of the Great Hall puts Exeter back on the touring circuit and enables us to present rock and pop concerts by first rate artists to South West audiences.'
