Exeter has a vibrant cultural scene. The Northcott Theatre, which is located on the campus of Exeter University, is one of only a few provincial theatres in England that has retained its own repertory company. The company put on an annual open air Shakespeare production in the grounds of Rougemont Castle and it is well respected nationally. The Northcott Theatre is the city's replacement to the Theatre Royal which was demolished in the 1960's. Exeter also has a number of other theatres. The New Theatre is home to the Cygnet Training Theatre and the Barnfield Theatre is a charity and is used for both professional and amateur productions.
