About the venue
To call The Royal Exchange ‘iconic’ would be putting it lightly. First built in 1566, the celebrated centre of trade has burned down twice over the course of its history; it was last rebuilt in its original Roman style and reopened by Queen Victoria in 1844. Surrounded by neoclassical pillars, decorative archways and limestone walkways, the extraordinary setting makes for a monumental backdrop.
