Details

The history of theatre in Exeter, or rather of live entertainment for the masses, can be traced back to the Roman occupation of the city. There is a reasonable amount of archaeological evidence that points to the existence of a Roman amphitheatre on Dane's Hill.

The Northcott is the seventh building in Exeter to be used as a theatre. In 1962, the Theatre Royal was demolished to be replaced by an office block. Fortunately, there were many people in Exeter who were determined that the city should not be without a theatre for very long. Early in 1962 Mr G.V.Northcott had started negotiations with the Board of Directors of the Theatre Royal with the view to "saving" the theatre, and its re-creation as a Theatre and Arts Centre.
