The Palace Theatre, on Oxford Street, is a Grade II listed building, first opened on Whit Monday 1891 at the then colossal cost of £40,500.  In the late 1970s, The Palace underwent a major refurbishment, re-opening in 1981 with Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Jesus Christ Superstar.  Since then it has been a  “must visit” theatre for touring theatrical productions,  particularly the latest box office hit musicals.

The original capacity of 3,675  was reduced to its current 1,955, to make it more comfortable and accessible for the audience. A visit to a show at the historic The Palace Theatre is a magical experience.
