Welcome...

I am pleased to report that the Palace Theatre is doing its bit to help the environment. We have made great progress in dispensing with single use plastics... Stirrers are wooden, straws are paper and the beer glasses are made from plant material! Cheers! At the time of writing, Cinderella is looking set to be a winner! We have a fantastic cast and Box Office sales are going through the roof. How wonderful it will be to set a new record with this extremely popular pantomime. Our new Lounge Bar is receiving very positive comments. It has a very relaxed art deco feel and is the ideal spot to unwind as a VIP customer. The excitement is mounting as the audience attendance figures continue to rise. We are approaching our two millionth customer since the Theatre was refurbished in 1997. Who knows, it could be you who is the person who is acknowledged. Keep an eye on our website, social media pages and the local press for further details! Believe it or not, after a couple of months of fabulous pantomimes, there are other shows on offer! As always, the programme is very varied with hopefully something for everyone. Please enjoy browsing through this very full brochure.

Time: 7.30pm Tickets: £23.20 All Seats Duration: Approx 2hrs 30mins Venue: Palace Theatre, Main Stage The Upbeat Beatles are second to none powerhouse vocals, precision harmonies and tight musicianship. The guys have an easy, happy rapport with any crowd, giving them a reputation to be envied as the best in the business. There isn’t a band to touch them - eight bars of Twist and Shout and you will know why! No other band can perform this song like The Upbeat Beatles! The show takes you through the Fab Four’s long and winding road from the early Cavern days through Beatlemania, America, Sergeant Pepper to Abbey Road, with narrative and full multi-media presentation. If you love the Beatles you’ll love this show, and even if you don’t love the Beatles you’ll love this show!
