Cambridge Corn Exchange : Strategic Organisational Review

Curved window over the Cambridge Corn Exchange door Cambridge City Council operates the Corn Exchange as part of an integrated Arts and Entertainment Division, which also includes the internationally recognized Cambridge Folk Festival. It had been several years since the City Council had reviewed the theatre, and GVA RGA was commissioned to carry out at study to consider the optimum future management and operational arrangements for the Corn Exchange. The review considered both qualitative and financial factors, and the implications of future change on cultural provision as a whole.

The results were adopted by the City Council with the support of all political parties, and helped secure the venue during a time of spending review.
The Corn Exchange in Cambridge is one of the busiest and most important touring venues in the East of England. The venue is a striking converted Victorian building, with a distinctive façade, and situated in the heart of the City. Its programme includes orchestral and rock concerts, musicals, opera, ballet, comedy and children’s shows. It is also used for conferences and a range of other activity and has a capacity of up to 1462 for all-seated shows and up to 1849 for shows with a mix of seated and standing. Around 200,000 people attend events at the Corn Exchange every year, and the venue makes an important contribution to Cambridge’s success as a major regional centre for employment, retail, leisure and tourism.
