Royal Exchange

Resembling a lunar space craft set down amidst the glass domes and towering columns of this Grade II listed building, the Royal Exchange is the largest Theatre in the round in the country, seating up to 750 people on three levels. The venue homes a range of beautiful event spaces that can be hired for weddings, civil partnerships, parties, conferences and meetings. 

The Exchange Suite, once the boardroom of the former Cotton Exchange, is perfect for private working lunches, important business meetings, or elegant entertaining. With its original oak panelling and old-world atmosphere, the suite boats a private double-height reception with bar and sweeping staircase leading up to the intimate boardroom. Offering absolute privacy, the Exchange Suite is perfect for a working lunch, an important business meeting or simple elegant entertaining. Available throughout the day, the capacity is 24. 

The Front Room overlooks both St Ann's Square and The Great Hall and offers striking views of the steel and glass Theatre module, set within the grand Victorian architecture of the former Cotton Exchange. With access via a scenic glass lift in St Ann's Square, the Front Room is a self-contained entertaining space, with its own toilets and bar. The room offers a standing capacity for 90 guests and seated dinner for 70.
