Heritage Open Day 2021
For the first time, the Exeter Northcott Theatre will be sharing items from its archive and sharing stories from the people and productions making up more than 50 years of rich history as Exeter’s much loved, flagship theatre.
Visitors will be able to view and rummage through materials from the theatre’s history, share their own memories, take part in family activities, and be part of an important conversation about the future of theatre and whose stories we tell in a discussion facilitated by diversity consultant and artist Louisa Adjoa Parker.
As part of a two year project funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, the Exeter Northcott is exploring its archive and heritage with the communities it serves: hosting exciting events to interpret the materials in its heritage collections, and having conversations to shape the future of the theatre.
This open afternoon invites locals to learn more about the Northcott’s role in the creation and sharing of live performance and entertainment in the South West, while imagining what could come next.
