The new Royal Exchange Den

A gift of £1m to Manchester Royal Exchange Theatre by The Oglesby Charitable Trust enables the development of The Den, a new pop-up theatre space.

It has been designed as an informal space for residents to make and share theatre and to see work from the Royal Exchange.

It has been inspired both by the Exchange’s Module theatre, how it connects artists and audiences and the secure, imaginative space of a child’s den.
