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 Hermès 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 £1000 of beauty treatments — 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.
