🚌 City centre parade on Monday, May 9 to celebrate City’s incredible season

Join us to celebrate a fantastic season!

9 May 2022

An open top bus parade and Civic Reception will be held next week to celebrate Exeter City’s promotion to League One.

The parade will begin in Exeter High Street from 6pm on Monday, May 9.

Exeter clinched promotion on April 26 at SJP, and will be celebrating in front of thousands of fans in the city centre on Monday.


High Street will be closed to traffic for the parade, which will start when two open top buses containing the players and staff from Exeter City enter the High Street just after 6pm.

Stewards from the club will escort the buses as they slowly travel along High Street towards Exeter’s historic Guildhall.

At around 6.20pm the coaches are expected to arrive at the historic Guildhall, where the players will be met by past Lord Mayor of Exeter Cllr Yolonda Henson, who will congratulate the club and address the crowds from one of the parade buses.

There will then be a Civic Reception hosted by the past Lord Mayor and invited guests inside the historic Guildhall.

At around 6.55pm some of the players and manager Matt Taylor are expected to appear on the balcony at the Guildhall for photographs and to greet the crowds gathered outside.

At around 7.15pm the players and staff will board the buses for departure.  

All supporters are welcome. Please be aware of safety and do not step out in front of the buses at any time.

Cllr Henson said: “On behalf of everyone in the city I want to congratulate Exeter City on their incredible achievement. We are very much looking forward to the parade and Civic Reception on Monday – it will be an amazing occasion and I know everyone is very much looking forward to it.”
