Royal Exchange

  • About
    Manchester's premier theatre venue, in the town centre.

    The Royal Exchange Theatre Company has been run by a group of Artistic Directors since 1968. Although the names have changed they have remained a team of like-minded individuals sharing a common vision of the purpose and potency of theatre. The artistic strength of the company has always rested in the diverse styles and tastes of the different directors. This collective group at the heart of the company mirrors the process of creating theatre - a collaboration of vivid imaginations.

    Housing one of the most unusual theatre spaces in the country and the intriguingly different Studio space, the old Cotton Exchange is a hub for those wanting to find out more about the Arts in the city and beyond.

    THE THEATRE
    The Theatre is a seven-sided, glass-walled capsule literally suspended from huge marble pillars. The unique design means that none of the 760 seats are more than nine metres from the circular stage, with seats all around, giving great views wherever you sit.

    THE STUDIO
    The Studio transforms for every show, with walls and partitions that slide and seating that moves to fir the design. The 90 seats are unreserved and you can take your drinks into the auditorium.

    THE GREAT HALL
    The Great Hall houses our Bar and The Round, as well as Craft Shop and the Box Office. There is free entertainment every Friday from 6pm – 7pm and an Information Point for information on the fascinating history of the building, as well as other venues around Manchester.
