 Lost Weekend


The festival aims "to showcase what is new and exciting, to imagine the future and to enjoy being creative".


An introduction from Councillor Rachel Sutton, Lead Councillor for Culture:

I’m delighted to welcome Lost Weekend to Exeter. This October great music, playable art, thought provoking ideas and the latest in technology will come together in the heart of the city for a brand new festival. We have manged to join up locations and talent across the city for the first time for what should be a wonderful weekend of discovery and enjoyment.

Creating good things to see and do in the city isn’t something people expect the council to be doing. Here in Exeter, we know how important it is. I would like to thank everyone who has worked so hard in this first year to help organise what we hope will become an annual major event enjoyed and celebrated by thousands of people.


You are invited to lose yourself in this Lost Weekend.
