West Side Story - Saturday 15th August (Matinee)

Went to the Palace on Saturday 15th August 2015 to see West Side Story. In the gods again with restricted legroom but it's worth it. The theatre is everything you could expect, Super impressive Grand Victorian style with ornate everything. Plasterwork, lighting, luscious red velvet and a sense of occasion. The grand tier is high up and not for everybody... More

West Side Story was amazing, and have to say I've just witnessed a number of our future stage stars. A particular shout out goes to the amazing Rebecca Bolton playing Maria. I would like to thank the Theatre for giving the youngsters this annual theatre experience. Anyway down to brass tacks and this theatre. The Palace is an old style... More

We can't fault this place having attended many shows here. However, we went to watch West Side Story and bought the tickets in advance. Having noticed that a box for 3 was available we opted for that. The price included a small bottle of Champers each and some nibbles (nuts/spicy bits). We were met and shown to our "box" promptly...

My other half treated me to the Lion King. I love this theatre, it's very pretty and the stage show was awesome. Be aware though if it says restricted leg room it really means it!

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!
