Exmouth Festival is back on the Imperial Recreation Ground from Thursday, June 2 to Sunday, June 5.
The recently announced programme is full of live music, circus workshops, theatre, family activities and much more.
Running across the extended bank holiday weekend, organisers say "You can expect a family-friendly atmosphere throughout the day, with lots of activities for children to get involved in, plus a fairground for the adventure-seekers."
The festival remains free for everyone to enjoy, but festival organisers ask you to consider making a donation to help cover the costs. The music line-up features local talent such as Ruby May Spencer, The Barefoot Bandit and Not The Cowboys, alongside headliners Cut Capers from Bristol, and internationally renowned Space and Musical Youth.
Exmouth Festival is back in 2022, after a two-year break for the Covid-19 pandemic. The last event took place in June 2019. Exmouth Festival is a multi-arts festival providing entertainment in a wide variety of arts such as live music, arts & crafts and food at the Imperial Recreation Ground in Exmouth over the bank holiday June weekend.
