Starting with art-as-game trio Invisible Flock, who will occupy a disused shop on Exeter High Street armed with tea, giant maps of the city and a desire to record favourite memories of passers-by, the project will end up in the Met Office’s base, where a joyful six-piece band, Hope and Social, will try to retell some of the stories.

The Flock will draw a map of Exeter’s happiness. They’ve already received hundreds from elsewhere across the country thanks to a tour and interactive online map.

Felicity Liggins, a Climate Adaptation Scientist at the Met Office, said the Exeter team was “proud” of their local community, predicting an event which would celebrate the city in a “unique” and “entertaining” way.

  • Runs March 28-30. Tickets £10, advance booking required. Telephone 01392 493493 to book.
