Welcome

The Royal Exchange Theatre is a seven-sided, glass-walled capsule, literally suspended from huge marble pillars situated in The Great Hall of the historic Victorian Cotton Exchange Buildings in Manchester city centre. The unique design means all seats are less than nine metres from the circular stage giving views from all angles. Our policy is to express the bewildering, complex wonderment of life through the full spectrum of theatre. Read more about us here.
