“The Royal Exchange is a grade II listed building. The complex includes the Royal Exchange Theatre and the Royal Exchange Shopping Centre. The exchange has four storeys and two attic storeys built on a rectangular plan in Portland stone. It was designed in the Classical style. The theatre features a seven-sided steel and glass module that squats within the building's Great Hall. It is a pure theatre in the round in which the stage area is surrounded on all sides, and above, by seating. Its unique design conceived by Richard Negri of the Wimbledon School of Art is intended to create a vivid and immediate relationship between actors and audiences. It is worth visiting it even if you don't go to a theatre play :)”
