What’s on in Exeter this summer

What’s on in Exeter’s Northernhay Gardens

If you are wondering what’s on in Exeter this summer, look no further, we’ve compiled a short list of some of our favourite events on in the next few months:

Exeter Cathedral Lego re-build

Here is your chance to be a part of something bigger, if you love Lego then we have this fantastic opportunity for you to be a part of. It’s the Exeter Cathedral 300,000 piece Lego re-build. Launched in February of this year, the plan is to create a replica of the grand cathedral in Lego bricks. One of only 3 replica Lego Cathedrals in the country, Exeter is lucky enough to have won the competition for this incredible build. Once finished the building should span 3.6m lengthways, 2m in width and 1m in height. For just £1 per brick you can add a piece to the masterpiece and leave your mark. Why not visit the life-sized Cathedral while you’re here and take in the impressive architecture?

Exeter Craft Festival

Exeter’s Annual Craft Festival will be held at the Cathedral Green from Friday 15th July to Saturday 17th July. The festival will showcase a wide range of artworks and creations from the South West. Artists from all over will come together to celebrate and share their works with others. Product categories such as glasswork, leatherwork, jewellery making, ceramics and preserves will be available to view and purchase.  Live entertainment will also be accessible throughout the weekend, with classics such as Punch and Judy shows, Morris dancers and musicians at varying times of the day. The fun doesn’t stop there, as refreshments available include Caribbean food, crepes, ice cream and fresh coffee.
