Hidden away above Reed Hall on the University of Exeter’s campus is the old Exeter Northcott Theatre carpentry workshop and presently still the workplace of Mike Parr and Bob Johnson, members of the Northcott’s carpentry team.

Northcott used to be a producing house so would make all of the sets there.

Mike Parr was part of the group who built the theatre.

Mike and Bob now run their own carpentry and joinery business and because their business is expanding, they’re moving to a new premises off campus.

There’s a lot of history in the workshop, metaphorically and also literally, as the walls are plastered with old theatre posters and Mike and Bob have a lot of interesting stories to tell.

Please take a look at some of the pictures

Thanks for looking.
