General information


Although What's on in Exeter began its life with the purpose of primarily advertising live music entertainment in Exeter, we have now received so many requests from our many subscribers to include more diverse information that we've had to overhaul the site to reflect these changes. We hope you will find that it is now less cluttered and easier to navigate.

The Magic Garden
The Phoenix, Exeter

Mon 13th Aug



The teddy bears are going to have a picnic in the Magic Garden under the shade of a magic tree which is home to fairies and some adorable woodland creatures. The children in the audience agree to keep watch to keep it safe but a knotted handkerchief reminds Mr. Forget-me-not to cut down the tree so they can all stay longer in the sunshine. Luckily Auntie Mimi has a plan and, with the help of some woodland creatures and the children, they prevent a disaster to an invisible fairy world which only they can see.

This show is especially suited to children aged 2 to 6 years. It show lasts one hour and the children will be spellbound as the garden beautifully reveals its mystery.
