i'v been to this theater on many occasions. it is quite small but this gives the advantage of having a good view wherever you sit. a varied selection of shows from plays, pantomimes, brass bands, to beatles tributes. well worth a visit. we like to sit in about row H.

Small but just right for small concerts. The bar was a bit tight. not very many seats if many people are waiting. The theatre seats were comfortable. We had a great time. The location was ideal. Lovely experience.

We were taken with the size of this place, because we don't like the big venues that bands usually play, We went to see the much awaited performance of Elio Pace, and he didn't dissapoint , the size was just right every body could have good advantage point because of the staggered seating, a great venue to see your favourite...

We went to see an absolutely amazing show at the Palace Theatre on Saturday 5 September whilst on holiday in the area. This was the second time we have visited this lovely traditional theatre, which was only around 15 minutes’ walk from our accommodation on the sea front. On arrival, we were greeted by very friendly and helpful members of... More

A small theatre saved and run by volunteer fund raisers who are doing an outstanding job ... hat's off to you all! We had booked for a night with "The New Jersey Boys", a tribute act to Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons. The show had a great mix of appropriate history, well performed numbers and humour thrown in for... More

Went to see the new jersey boys, only a small theatre but excellent acoustics, if you sit right at the top you get a better sound quality and still are very close to the stage.

The show was bright and such fun from start to finish but oh what a great treat it was to hear the wonderful voice of Einer Vestmann as he sang the aria. I was moved to my soul and can't help feeling that he should be moving on to better things with a voice like his.
