Exeter Blitz Project

Exeter Blitz ProjectT0964301688
Between 1940 and 1942 Exeter was blitzed by the German Luftwaffe 19 times. The worst raid took place in the early hours of May 4th, 1942. This event dramatically altered the landscape of the city of Exeter forever. To commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Exeter Blitz in May 2012, Viva Voce, in collaboration with the Bike Shed Theatre, have created a theatrical blitz experience, which will share and celebrate the real-life stories of those who experienced the Blitz here in Exeter. Viva Voce have interviewed over 20 people who were between the ages of 6 and 25 in 1942. The play is a testament to their extraordinary stories. The Bike Shed Theatre will be raising money for Age UK Exeter throughout the run.
