Kaiser Chiefs Ticket agency Exeter Phoenix and University of Exeter’s venue arm, Event Exeter, have partnered to reopen the university’s concert venue Exeter Great Hall.
After three years of closure due to a major building programme on the University of Exeter’s Streatham Campus, the Exeter Great Hall has reopened and will host rock and pop concerts by world-famous artists this autumn.
The largest concert hall west of Bristol, the Exeter Great Hall, with a capacity of 1,800 visitors, has a history of staging concerts by music greats such as U2, Bob Marley, Pink Floyd and more recently, Blur, The Arctic Monkeys, Radiohead and Keane.  
In a new partnership, Exeter Phoenix will now be programming and managing events at the Exeter Great Hall in conjunction with Event Exeter in order to bring back large rock and pop concerts to the city.
The first concerts programmed under the partnership are Newton Faulkner, who has sold over 1 million albums in the UK alone and rock band Shinedown in October; and the Kaiser Chiefs in February 2013.
“The Exeter Great Hall It is a fantastic venue for rock, pop, world and classical music and we are delighted to be working with Exeter Phoenix to bring more great music to Exeter,” said Arts and Culture Director at University of Exeter, Dominic Jinks.
Event Exeter represents the University of Exeter’s portfolio of venues which together provide meeting and event space for between 10 and 1,200 delegates.
