On 17 May, get inspired by the story of the the Women's Coxless Crew who sailed across the Pacific - you can see a film of their achievements followed by a discussion with the team themselves.

The Exeter Northcott Theatre's forthcoming season will be offering something for all tastes - a musical adaptation of La StradaOthello with the Tobacco Factory,  and English Touring Opera's Tosca, to name but a few. Check out the full Exeter Northcott Theatre programme here.
