Exeter puts culture at the forefront, with numerous plans and initiatives in place to encourage the arts, heritage and sustainable movements. Five of its organisations are part of the Arts Council National Portfolio and it’s also a UNESCO City of Literature, a status that showcases the city’s dedication to the literary world.

If you’re looking to start a career in the arts, there are plenty of schemes and opportunities to take advantage of after buying your new home. For example, writers can sign up for the Writers’ Mailing List and be the first to hear of local competitions and job roles, whereas the Northcott Theatre and the Exeter Phoenix arts venue have support schemes available for aspiring artists. Budding creatives and cultural aficionados are sure to feel right at home here.
