Christmas campaign

This year sees the return of our Charity Christmas Tree Festival. Back for its 8 th year, the festival will see 35 trees, each decorated by a different local charity, displayed along Roman Walk in Princesshay.

As part of our #givethanks Christmas campaign we are also working with the Exeter Homelessness Partnership to support Exeter’s most at risk residents.

In the six weeks leading up to Christmas, volunteers from the Exeter Homelessness Partnershi p will set up a designated space within Princesshay for shoppers to donate essential items to vulnerable people across the city.

Busk in Exeter

We are also excited to be taking part in Busk in Exeter alongside colleagues at Exeter City Council, In Exeter and the Gu ildhall Shopping Centre. The programme will take Princesshay’s existing busking initiative and expand it to include a further five pitches across the city. This means that, from the end of October, visitors will be able to hear more live performances than ever.

Co Bikes

Working in partnership with local electric bikes experts Co Bikes, we are in the process of launching a new dock less bike station on Bedford Street. The station will be piloted for six months and provide space for 10 new bikes as part of our commitment to enhance the city centre’s active travel infrastructure.
