For the last 15 years the Royal Exchange Theatre has enjoyed a fruitful and rewarding relationship with hospitality provider Baxterstorey who has operated the restaurant, café and bars at the theatre. In those 15 years much has changed, not only on the stage of this unique theatre, but also with theatre-going audiences and significantly in the eating and drinking sector in Manchester. This summer the current hospitality contract comes to an end and we are inviting any interested parties – current and new - to explore new ideas for the future of food and drink at the theatre and to make proposals to us for the next four years.

The Royal Exchange Theatre is opening up an opportunity to tender for all interested parties who wish to bid for the chance to re-imagine this eating and drinking experience for city centre shoppers, visitors and theatre goers alike.
