Great Hall at

Royal Exchange Theatre

Scroll forward through photos

A dramatic setting for pre-show drinks and a peaceful escape for afternoon tea, the Great Hall has something for everyone.

Within the Great Hall you can't miss the module theatre. 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.

There is also a cafe and bar, a shop for an exquisite gift or some tasteful memorabilia of Manchester.

More about 

The historic Royal Exchange is home to much more than a theatre. The building's rich history, the dramatic Great Hall and the rooms' exquisite decor need to be seen to be believed.

We are a licensed wedding venue, and you can even get married on the theatre stage. We are also an excellent choice for company away days, conferences and workshops.

If you are looking for a unique venue in the heart of the city centre, with event spaces to suit every occasion, then look no further.
