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 Music Events Calendar covers mainly pubs and clubs in Exeter -  all other music concerts/DJs are covered via the "Other Live Music" link above and are concerts or venues not listed in the Events Calendar. These cover Exeter and areas surrounding Exeter, as do our other events.
