The Royal Exchange Theatre was founded in 1976 in the town's former Cotton Exchange, a Neoclassical grade II listed building completed in 1921. The city-centre building was damaged by an IRA bomb in 1996 and subsequently repaired and refurbished with National Lottery funding to include a new performance space, as well as a craft shop, cafe, restaurant and bars. The main performance space is a theatre in the round with the 760 seat auditorium surrounding the stage on all sides and on three levels. The smaller Studio space can seat up to 90. The theatre company has a reputation for supporting new writing and for nurturing future acting and directorial talent, with many established stars having kicked off their careers here.
