15 Sep - 30 Oct 2021

This September the Royal Exchange Theatre turns 45. That’s 45 years since our unique spaceship-like theatre landed in the centre of Manchester, 45 years of creative storytelling, incredible performances, new plays, community projects and passionate audiences.

From the 15 of September, we’re asking you, our friends new and old, to join us and help us raise £45,000 over the next 45 days, as we celebrate 45 amazing years of the Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester.

We’ll be sharing stories from some familiar faces who’ve been part of our journey and inviting audiences to see our story brought to life in an exhibition in our Great Hall.

We need your help to kickstart a year of fundraising so that we can RXIGNITE our beloved theatre – with all of the money raised going directly to bold and exciting productions for the future.

Join us and donate whatever you can to enjoy some of our unique rewards available, or help us share our fundraising campaign on social media.
