Exeter Festival to return in 2020 thanks to summer success

Exeter Festival organisers are promising another massive weekend to remember when the event returns next summer.

The festival will be back at Northernhay Gardens and other venues around the city from Friday, July 3, to Sunday, July 5.

Details of 2020’s headline acts, and how to buy tickets, are set to be revealed shortly.

More than 8,000 people attended this summer’s event, which was widely hailed as a big success.

It featured live music, film, comedy, street entertainers, local food and drink producers, a wide variety of stalls, a major craft fair and a day of health and wellbeing activities.

Organisers are promising another fun-filled weekend of top entertainment next year.

Councillor Rachel Sutton, Exeter City Council lead for climate and culture, said: “We are delighted to announce the return of Exeter Festival in 2020.

“This summer’s event was a big success which surpassed our expectations in terms of both numbers attending, and the amount of positive feedback it received.

“It really is a community event which showcases the city as a great place to live, work in and visit.

“Quality of life is so important – and providing people with entertainment, culture and a sense of community is so important.

“That’s why I am really delighted to see the return of Exeter Festival in 2020.”
