Welcome to What’s on in Exeter


When visiting any of these web pages, please right-click and choose "Reload" or "Refresh", depending on which browser you are using, as the website is constantly being updated.

This website, (& especially the What’s On Calendar of Events), was set up at the request of a few local pub owners who were concerned that there was no way of letting local people know about the entertainment in their pubs/clubs/venues since the demise of “What’s On” in the local paper.


3 years on &, (thanks to word-of-mouth), we have had over 21,000 hits in one month this year which means that it has indeed filled that gap.


As well as having a What’s on in Exeter Calendar of Events, we realised that it would be useful if the organisers of bands/entertainment could find information & contact details of the acts themselves & where the acts could also find a space to promote themselves, so that was included.


We hope you find this site useful.

Other information & the future development of this website


Although What's on in Exeter began its life with the purpose of primarily advertising live music entertainment and other music events, we have subsequently included a Charity Events & Other Information page at the request of many of our subscribers. However, this website has increasingly received more of those requests to include other events and therefore we are in the process of overhauling the look and the fundamental purpose of the website to offer a more diverse coverage of what is available to entertain you and your family in and around Exeter.


We will continue to advertise live musical events both on this page and on our Events Calendar but will soon be allocating more space and some larger sections on this page to various other entertainment venues, as well as having an expanded "more information" page.


Further detailed information is not available at this time as re-designing the website takes some forethought and, therefore, time.


Please Contact us if you have any suggestions or would like your venue/event listed


Thank you for your continued support as we endeavour to improve this website
