Northcott Theatre Exeter

The Northcott Theatre on the Streatham campus of the University of Exeter is one of Devon's best theatres.

The Northcott has recently reopened after it was closed for a redevelopment.

The Northcott Theatre stages drama, opera and ballet as well as music concerts. Highlights over the next two months include performances by Birmingham Royal Ballet, English Touring Opera and the play "Spies."

Amateur and university productions are also staged here.

The theatre employs about 60 staff and was opened in 1967. It is named after a local businessman, G V Northcott, who provided £100,000 to establish the trust that built the theatre.

There are fears, however, over the Northcott's future after the Arts Council announced that it would not fund the theatre from 2009, just after the theatre reopened post-refurbishment in December 2007.
