About

The 460-seat Exeter Northcott Theatre is the city’s flagship professional theatre, producing and curating a vibrant programme of exceptional work from its home at the heart of the University of Exeter’s Streatham Campus. 

The varied programme offers a platform for the best work by emerging and established local, regional, national and international artists – visitors will find an exciting mix of the best dance, opera, classical drama and family theatre, spiced with a healthy dash of comedy and dining events.

Based on the stunning University of Exeter's Streatham Campus, the varied programme includes drama, dance, opera, ballet, music, comedy and family shows, and aims to engage as broad a cross-section of the community as possible. It has exhibition space with a rolling programme of artist work.

The Northcott does a lot of education and reach out work in the City and has recently re--launched the Northcott Young Company to involve young people within certain productions and workshops and Saturday classes. See the website for more information.

Refreshments are available from the fully licensed bar, as well as an interesting range of locally sourced and homedishes from their Spires Cafe - a great place for a light lunch, pre-show supper or just meeting friends. For more information about booking arrrangements pre-show, or opening hours visit the Exeter Northcott website.

Performance and show tickets can be obtained from the Exeter Northcott Box Office on campus, or from Exeter Visitor Information & Tickers, Dix's Field, Exeter, EX1 1GF in the city centre - adjacent to the Princesshay car park (Call 01392 665885). There are many discounts available including multi-buy offers, groups, and reductions on tickets if you become a 'friend' of the theatre.

Some workshops, pre or post show talks accompany some events. Backstage tours are also available. Assisted Performances with BSL interpreted, audio described or captioned shows are offered, wherever possible. Contact the theatre for more information, where details can also be found about The Audience Club - which offers subsidised tickets throughout the season for outreach to adults with learning disabilities.  The Audience Club is a safe and familiar group supported by regular volunteers to make going to the theathre a great and accessible social activity.
