Friends of the Royal Exchange
have a Meet the Cast Party for every Royal Exchange production. Friends see the show and meet and talk to the cast after the show over drinks and nibbles in the Great Hall.

Friends of the Royal Exchange have Q&As with actors, directors and other members of the company. These are like a chat show, are exclusive to Friends and are held either backstage or in our lovely Front Room.

Friends of the Royal Exchange
visit places of interest which have included a walking tour of the History of Manchester Theatres and also Gorton Monastery.

Friends of the Royal Exchange go to other Theatres and have recently been to see Sir Antony Sher at the Crucible Theatre and Dame Judi Dench at the Rose Theatre in Kingston upon Thames.

Friends of the Royal Exchange have regular Quiz Nights. The questions are mainly general knowledge with one round being specific to the Royal Exchange Theatre. This is a fun night and helps to raise money for the Theatre.

Friends of the Royal Exchange Book Group meets once a month at the Theatre and any Friend is welcome.

Friends of the Royal Exchange
enjoy coming together as volunteers manning the Information Point in the Great Hall and helping Marketing with mailing.
