Art, music and culture
ARTS AND CULTURE CONTRIBUTE CONSIDERABLY TO THE QUALITY OF LIFE IN EXMOUTH.
From comedy classes, watercolour workshops and even guerrilla
knitting, there is something for everyone.
With live music every night of the week, covering all genres, the music
scene in Exmouth is a far cry from the usual tribute acts on offer in
One of the main events in the Exmouth calendar is the Exmouth Festival
– a vibrant, contemporary and free community festival, now in its 23rd
year. Though primarily an arts festival, a large emphasis is placed on
supporting new and emerging artists from the world of music, art, culture
and community projects, which brings in not only local audiences but
holidaymakers too. Based at the Imperial Recreation Ground, Exmouth
Festival is held over the late May Bank Holiday weekend.
In 2018, we had over 60 live music acts performing a wide variety of
genres and, in recent years, the Festival has played host to BBC award-
winning artists, BBC Introducing acts and established household
names such as Bad Manners, who performed at our 2016 Festival as
part of their 40th Anniversary tour, and Toyah who performed in 2017.
Building on 20+ years of success, the line-up for this year is looking the
best yet, with more big-name acts and opportunities for the up and
coming stars of tomorrow. More details of this year’s line-up can be
found at: www.exmouthfestival.co.uk
