About

Manchester's Royal Exchange Theatre Company transforms the way people see theatre, each other and the world around them.  Its historic building, was taken over by artists in 1976. Today it is an award-winning cultural charity that produces new theatre in-the-round, in communities, on the road and online.

Exchange remains at the heart of everything they make and do. Now, their currency is brand new drama and reinvigorated classics, the boldest artists and a company of highly skilled makers - all brought together to trade ideas and experiences with the people of Greater Manchester (and beyond).

The Theatre is a spectacular seven-sided, glass-walled capsule, suspended in the centre of the historic Cotton Exchange.  This unique design means all seats are less than nine metres from the circular stage.  The Studio is a smaller 90-seat flexible venue hosting touring and new productions.

In addition to plays and a programme of special events, the Theatre also houses the Theatre Shop and Shop Gallery, recognised as a major focal point of contemporary craft work in the North West.

Overlooking the Theatre, and St Ann’s Square is the Front Room. With a separate entrance, privacy and an optional bar area the space is ideal for meetings, presentations or private dining, and can accommodate up to 80 people.

In addition, the former board room of the Exchange is now a unique setting for a business meeting, away day, private dining, or drinks reception. This private suite is unique setting unrivalled for interior design, location and service.  The Café and indoor beer garden in the Grade II Listed Great Hall offers a warm welcome in a striking location, and the newly refurbished The Rivals restaurant is a welcome alternative to the bustle of the city.
