About Royal Exchange Theatre

Housed in the former Cotton Exchange in the city centre, the Royal Exchange is one of the most exciting and inspiring theatres in the country. As the largest 'theatre in the round' in the country, it offers a completely different experience to more traditional venues and can seat an audience of up to 700 each performance.


Its 360º seating and stage module provides a surprisingly intimate setting for the impressive range of productions on offer throughout the year, while its smaller, 90 seat 'Studio' theatre allows the Royal Exchange to offer lesser known and more experimental productions to equally appreciative audiences.
