The splendid Castle Courtyard is ideal for outdoor events and has played host to the likes of Coldplay and Le Roux in the past, providing an intimate and impressive backdrop for big names and local talents alike. The Exeter Castle is also a great location for indoor events such as weddings, parties, conferences and other functions with light, airy and newly restored Ballroom and Terrace Rooms. 

Exeter-Food-Festival-GreyOne of the most well known events held in the South West is the Exeter Food Festival which takes place on the 25th - 27th April at Exeter Castle.

The Festival is an annual event held in the courtyard of Exeter Castle and the surrounding Northernhay Gardens, right in the centre of Exeter. Taking place over three days, the Festival also includes two evening Festival After Dark Events featuring live music, chef demos and a great atmosphere.
