The Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester is sited in a building originally used to trade commodities such as cotton and textiles, the largest trading hall in England at the time. Trading ceased in 1968 and a theatre company took over in 1976. The building has been rebuilt after both WW2 and in the 1996 IRA bombings. The external architecture is in the classical style in Portland stone while internally there is a unique modern seven-sided steel and glass module, a pure theatre in the round, the largest in Britain, in which the stage area is surrounded on all sides by seating.
