We’ve teamed up with Exeter Guild to offer three lucky winners a pair of tickets to Exeter Beats, taking place over the early May bank holiday weekend at Exeter Castle.

Exeter Food Festival has announced an all-new evening event for 2018 from Friday 4th– Sunday 6th May. Exeter Beats will see top acts including Mad Dog Mcrea, Madness tribute One Step Behind and David Live, a David Bowie tribute, entertain the crowds in Exeter Castle Courtyard.

The event, hosted by Radio Exe, will bring the historic courtyard to life with a full line-up of top quality acts each evening plus regional street food and local ales, ciders and cocktails.

Exeter Beats will have a large undercover area to keep the party going and the crowds dry in the event of wet weather. The event is supported by Visit Exeter and sponsored by Otter Brewery and Radio Exe.

Food stalls in the Exeter Castle courtyard will include World Food, Thyme & Tide, Tom’s Pies, South Devon Pizza Company, Kenniford Farm and V Dorset. Otter Brewery will provide a well-stock bar with local ales and ciders, whilst the Oddfellows cocktail bar will be serving four amazing themed drinks including Gin Lemon Sherbert Slushes using Salcombe gin, alongside a range of 15 Westcountry drinks.
