This is our fifth annual CLIC for Christmas concert raising funds for CLIC Sargent. Once again, we will be hosting a celebration of Christmas in the beautiful Exeter Cathedral and will be joined by one of the winners of our Devon Schools Choir Competition, Exmouth Community College. In addition we are again thrilled to be welcoming the CLIC Sargent singers, a group of exceptionally talented young people who have all benefitted from the support of CLIC Sargent and will be sharing their stories with us as well as their beautiful music.
Exeter College is celebrating a record breaking fundraising year - raising more than £1,400 for charity - at its annual Festival of Carols.
Each year the College raises money at the event for its charity of the year as chosen by the staff and students. This year the college raised a record breaking £1,453.50 in aid of Nightstop Devon. The service took place at a packed Exeter Cathedral on Wednesday 5th December.
On 4th October, the finalists from the Devon Schools Choir Competition, run by La La Choirs, took centre stage at Southernhay URC and competed for a chance to perform in Exeter Cathedral at the annual sell out concert, CLIC for Christmas. Three choirs had been shortlisted and the choirs at the final sang two songs each. Yet again, the standard was incredibly high, giving the judging panel a really hard time deciding between them.
On Friday 8th December 2017, La La Choirs held their third annual ‘CLIC for Christmas’ concert at Exeter Cathedral. Performing to another sold-out audience, they started the festive season off with a bang with a selection of Christmas favourites, old and new.
La La Choirs were joined on stage by the winning choir from their Devon Schools Choir Competition, Kingsley School from Bideford, as well as the CLIC Sargent singers, a group of young people who have all at some point been CLIC Sargent service users and have taken part in their music programme.
Members of the Polish ‘307’ nightfighter squadron which defended Exeter during the Second World War will be honoured with a plaque in Exeter Cathedral this month, as the city marks the 75th anniversary of the Exeter Blitz.
The events on 15th November are part of ‘307 Squadron Day’, recalling the same date in 1942 when the squadron presented the city of Exeter with the Polish flag as a sign of international cooperation. This year’s events will be attended by His Excellency Arkady Rzegocki, Polish Ambassador to Great Britain.
“Green|Blue” is a series of black & white images of 'trees'. The work is derived from Environment Agency data on land at risk of flooding from rivers and the sea, separating out 21 river catchments around the South coast from the Sussex Ouse to the Bristol Avon.
Discover the oldest book of English literature in existence. Written in about 970AD, the Exeter Book is the oldest of only four surviving books of Anglo-Saxon literature anywhere in the world. Much admired for its beautiful writing and the quality of its verse, this unique book of poetry has been at Exeter Cathedral since Leofric, the first Bishop of Exeter, gave it to his church in around 1072.
