Summer Activities

Summer Activities

Exeter Cathedral will undergo an amazing makeover in the next 3 years. With National Heritage Lottery Funding we will upgrade facilities, improve our visitor welcome, develop local partnerships and tell our stories. A new look that is engaging and accessible to all. 

Encompassing one of our Heritage Fund themes, ‘Hyper Local’, into this summer programme, we are working with local partners and artists to put together exciting and engaging activities – something for everyone.
