“One of the biggest obstacles we have to overcome here at the Exmouth Pavilion is our reputation for tribute acts,” says Janette Cass, manager of the Exmouth Pavilion.
While there will always be room for a good quality tribute act, in 2014 we have some fabulous ‘named’ artistes appearing, many for the first time.
In February we have a visit from The Dreamboys on Friday 7, – this is always a popular night with the ladies.
We also have a FREE gig for you on Saturday, February 8, from American comedian Lewis Schaffer with his Free Until Famous 2014. Show.
The deal is this – you book your ticket at no cost, and after the show you pay Lewis what you think he was worth, at a collection on the door!
On Friday, March 7, we are delighted to be able to bring Ska fans, The Selecter – yes, this is the original line-up fronted by the singing duo comprising of the female icon of the two-tone era Pauline Black and Arthur ‘Gaps’ Hendrikson. Delivering classic hits like Three Minute Hero, Missing Words, On My Radio, James Bond and, of course, Too Much Pressure.
For fans of shows such as Ground Force and The Chelsea Flower Show, we bring you Charlie Dimmock with her A Passion For Gardens Tour on Sunday, March 16. Love your garden? Or do you wish you could love it more? Here’s your chance to be inspired in this special evening with TV gardening guru Charlie Dimmock, hosted by BBC Radio’s Paul Harris.

TV comedian Ed Byrne pays us a visit on the April 30, as part of his Roaring Forties Tour.
On Saturday, May 3, we are very excited to be able to bring you An Audience With Frank Bruno and Neil ‘Razor’ Ruddock. This is an over 18s event with ‘meet and greet’ tickets available too! Perfect for sports fans. Please note that some of Neil Razor Ruddock’s language is ‘adult’ and not for the easily offended!
Colin Fry, one of the World’s most recognised spiritualist mediums and healers is appearing at Exmouth Pavilion on Friday, June 20.
Colin’s TV series 6ixth Sense has now been broadcast worldwide for 12 years making his public performances an International demand.
Appearing in July we have THE Wurzels. They have sold out each time they have played at the Pavilion previously so don’t miss this Friday, July 18 date.
THE Joe Loss Orchestra featuring Todd Miller will be celebrating it’s 80th anniversary with us on Friday, August 22. It will also be Todd’s 40th year performing with them. The orchestra is now Britain’s longest running live entertainment company of any kind.

For Madness fans we have Complete Madness here in the Summer too. Back by popular demand is ‘Jackson’ the live show 2014 – this is probably the best tribute to Michael Jackson you will ever see, and for the many hundreds of Queen followers out there, this year we are also able to bring you The Bohemians.
A star in his own right, on Friday, April 18, Elio Pace will be with us to perform The Billy Joel Songbook.
