The Exchange Theatre and Bar

The Exchange has started a crowd-funder appeal under the new LEP scheme.  We have set a target of 3K and if we achieve it the LEP will give us an additional 50%, all going towards getting us to the point we can reopen. Here is the link…

The Exchange is an inclusive, welcoming venue. As a registered charity, our vision is to support arts and culture by creating an inspirational environment. You can hire the auditorium, gallery and Thomas Brown room at reasonable rates, and we offer events including theatre, music, film, and comedy at an affordable cost. Come and enjoy our Cafe Bar with a courtyard where you can socialise, eat and drink, and listen to live music and comedy. In the Cafe Bar, there is a gallery where artists can rent space and exhibit, and sell their work. Participation is integral to what we do; there is a variety of classes of dance, drama, art, writing and music amongst other things.
