Great performance by all the cast.
Always impressed by the plays put on here.
Proximity to the stage adds to the experience. When you visit, take time to explore the theatre. The architecture is stunning and worth closer inspection.

This place was used to be stock exchange but it’s a theatre now.
Great place to have a cup of tea.
Look around about the old days.
Don’t miss their decoration of the last business day on the very top of the wall.

Food is so so.

The Royal Exchange Theatre Manchester is the largest theatre in the round in the Uk.
Built in 1976 inside The Corn Exchange in StAnne’s Square in Manchester.
The theatre it self was made from 150 tons of steel derived from an oil rig.
The theatre company has a very high standard of plays including Shakespearean classics and more modern pieces.
I have seen plays in this theatre for 40 years and have never been disappointed.

I have mobility problems and was dropped off with my friends at the main original entrance where there was a very steep flight of stairs. We ascertained that the entrance with a lift was quite a long way away, so one of my friends got a wheelchair to take me to the service lift. The wheelchair had flat tires! So, terribly difficult beginning.
Please learn from this, and make sure you get dropped off at the right entrance if you have mobility problems.
The Theatre is being refurbished, so the main stage is in a strange structure inside the theatre itself. That is pretty comfortable and accessible.
The play, Queen Margaret, was really well done in a theatre in the round.

Walk in wander round and take in the awesome structure of the original exchange and the later theatre. All so huge all so clever. This really is a gem and should be visited by far more people - I thinkmany people think you cant go in and wander. The cafe is excellent and the food of a good high standard
