You just seem to have the whole theatre thing down to a T. We had red package tickets and we was escorted into our own little bar upstairs before the doors had even opened. We go complimentary nibbles and a complimentary drink. We were then asked if we wanted to pre-order for the break and when we returned they were... More

The question - is the Palace under new management/ownership. We are massive theatre goers and visit several times a month. We have visited the Palace on many occasions, the last time some 4/5 months ago - but what a difference. The gents toilets are a disgrace, they need a good clean and a fresh coat of paint and for gods... More

I went to see Shrek the musical with my sisters in January. It was my first time at the Palace Theatre and I was really impressed. The interior around the stage is lovely. The seats are very squished but you soon get over it when the show starts!

Treated my mum to lion king tickets we were sat on the ground floor. On entering the building we were abit confused as to where to go since there were no staff to point you in the right direction to find the entrance to the lower tier area, one side was hidden behind the merchandise stand. We got to our... More

I went to see the lion king with my family, the show its self was amazing but this review is on the theatre. The theatre is a little shabby and needs abit of TLC. I'm 5ft 10 and sitting in the circle proved difficult, my knees were literally in the back of the woman's head who was sat in front.... More

This is a review about the theatre only not the show. If you are disabled do not go here. Was promised that the seating would be level access but had to go done six steps and the seating was so cramped I had to leave the early as I was in agony and in tears. The duty manager was less... More

My sister and I took mum as part of her Christmas present. We had a wonderful time and we all thoroughly enjoyed the matinee show. I had seen the Lion King in London but it was just as good as I remembered it. The music, costumes and performers were excellent. The theatre itself is lovely and couldn't be better positioned...
