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.
