August is the month of festivals: from Glyndebourne to All Points East, from Notting Hill Carnival to the BBC Proms.

And whether you’re packing your bow tie in with your picnic for those long, lawn-sprawled opera intervals or donning party garb to dance all night/day/weekend, The Royal Exchange is here to elevate your ensemble into something truly special.

Look the part with hampers from HermΓ¨s and Fortnum’s, and dress to impress with stunning new summer pieces from Aspinal of London and Boodles.

We’ve got into the festival spirit ourselves with an extra special competition from M&K Aesthetics: the chance to win Β£1000 of beauty treatments β€” an incredible prize. In other news, we’re delighted to showcase the new space at Red Eight Gallery and welcome the Danish coffee project Hagen to The Royal Exchange.
