New Entertainment Venue Consultation

We want your views on a potential new entertainment venue in Exeter.

In 2017 we, and our partners in the New Entertainment Venue Advisory Group (NEVAG), commissioned a study on the need for a new venue in Exeter. This study looked at market demand and current supply, key venue considerations, where it might be located and how it could be developed and sustained. The study concluded that there is potential for a multi-purpose, city centre entertainment venue with a mixed programme and capacity of around 1,200 seated.

The study also emphasised that a key requirement for a new venue would be to ensure that it is financially sustainable, and does not become a burden on the public purse.  A range of possible options would need to be considered and detailed feasibility studies would be required before any commitment to the way forward can be made.

We want everyone to have a say on the findings and to give us their thoughts on the type of entertainment venue that they and Exeter need.


This consultation is now closed and we would like to thank everyone who completed the survey and gave us their thoughts and ideas. We will analyse your responses and produce a report in the Autumn.
