Powderham Castle  - Let's Rock Exeter


THE Retro Festival once again hits Powderham on 1 July 2017!

The organisers of Let’s Rock Exeter, UK Live, pride themselves in the fact that their events are aimed at the whole family, with entertainment for everyone.

Multiple bars and a wide range of quality food outlets will be on site, selling food from around the world. You can bring your own picnic into the main arena but we have a wide variety of catering on offer, including a large BBQ, Indian, Mexican and Chinese. Unfortunately, we can not allow alcohol to be brought in to, or out of the arena (a range of premium alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks will be on sale from our bars).

Headlining this year will be legendary jazz-funk fusion band Level 42 who are bound to get the ground rocking to their hit list.

Also confirmed as appearing are :-

Tony Hadley

Howard Jones

Belinda Carlisle

Jason Donovan

Chesney Hawkes


Big Country

From the Jam

Hazel O'Connor


Jaki Graham


Gates open at 11.00am with the event starting at midday through to 10.30pm. Running order will be published on the day. Camping will be available at Let’s Rock Exeter! on Saturday night, for those wishing to make a weekend of it.

Watch this space for artists programmed to attend.

The Venue:

Powderham Castle is located in a unique, picturesque setting just outside Exeter, beside the Exe estuary.

Six hundred years of history are contained within the walls of one of England’s oldest family homes. Sir Philip Courtenay began building it in 1391 and it has remained in the same family to this day, currently home to the 18th Earl & Countess of Devon.

The magical setting and convenient location makes it the perfect venue for all manner of events including weddings and business functions and now of course, Let’s Rock Exeter! For locals and visitors to Devon it is a ‘must see’ and with its many attractions – a wonderful family day out!
