Showing friends from Bulgaria around Manchester. Went in for coffee, and to show them the amazing theatre structure sitting in the hall of the old cotton exchange trading floor. Doors to auditorium were open, we peeped inside. Rehearsal in course. Friends were impressed with setting.

I always prefer to sit on the front row of the 1st tier (i.e. up stairs looking down on the action.) As long as you book in advance, I've seldom had a problem getting the seats that I want. Great theatre, enjoy.

As the theatre is so small , all the seats are pretty good , we prefer the stalls , and if you don't like heights they are your best bet.
