I was so looking forward to this production and really it didn't disappoint. Go Alice! However the one bugbear was in the stage execution for the opening songs. The thrill of the screens and mixture of stage and projection was spoiled. This was because the digital screen was so high it was out-of-sight for those of us sitting in the... More

My wife and I went to see the Saturday matinee performance of wonder.land today. The bar staff were very helpful before the show and the show was excellent. Tomorrow the show ends and then it goes on to the National Theatre in London where I am sure it will be a great success. Just glad we got to see it... More

This is an old theatre with plenty of character. However if your disabled you may find it difficult to access. I booked a disabled and carer seat in the stalls. When we arrived we missed the sign for the stalls and we went to the kiosk and were told to go down the stairs, near the entrance. There must have... More

I just love the theatre and the Palace has to be one of the best. Considering it opened in 1891 it is still one of the best places to see any of the 'Big shows'. I have see 'Les Miserables' twice here and the sound quality is excellent. I saw 'Wicked' one of my all time favorites and again the... More

This is a classic theatre with plenty of character and atmosphere. May not have the home comforts of the chain groups, but the home feel of the venue more than compensate for this. An iconic Manchester landmark!

Good prices for a pleasant venue which reminds of large playhouses old fashioned theatre. Easy to find , comfortable seats with good views. Was in stalls so can't comment on upper tiers. Within easy walking distance of central hotels

Fantastic staff, lovely venue and catered for our ten year old daughter who is a wheelchair user. Helpful staff who even ensured that we got ice-cream during the interval. There was a lift to the wheelchair spaces and a disabled loo on the same first floor. Just great!

Went to see a a great show here and the seats were remarkably comfortable as theatre seats go! We had ordered drinks for the interval but spent half the interval looking for them! We were seated in the stalls and followed the signs for the stalls bar but nowhere was there any indication that there were two bars! Also, as... More

Just got back from a fab Saturday night performance of Forbidden Planet. The Palace is a famous Victorian theatre in central Manchester. It's everything you'd expect. Gold paintwork, deep red carpets ornate carving and fancy plasterwork. We were in the Grand Tier which is show biz speak for really scary high up place that's knee knockingly close to the ceiling....
