The Royal Exchange Community programme is designed to give participants real ownership of this extraordinary building.

Our priority for this programme is to reach people who may not otherwise feel that theatre is for them, and to bring together diverse groups and individuals - a true reflection of the environment in which the Royal Exchange exists.

If you have a group that would like to get involved please contact Engagement Manager Jack Bamber on 0161 833 9333 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for a chat.

"I am so proud to have been given these opportunities, The positive aspects have been phenomenal, I’ve seen people grow, I’ve seen people who’ve been isolated and have not wanted to become involved in anything community minded, I’ve seen them come in and sit down, you just hope they come back to become part of the community’.  About our community partnership work
