The creative hub at the heart of Watford, the Palace engages people through commissioning, creating and presenting high-quality theatre, and developing audiences, artists and communities through exciting opportunities to participate.
The beautiful 600-seat Edwardian Palace Theatre is a Grade II listed building. Refurbished in 2004, the Theatre offers modern and accessible facilities including its own rehearsal room and wardrobe and scenic workshop. Recently the Theatre opened the new Green Room Bar and continues to develop the quality of experience for the tens of thousands of people visiting the Theatre each year.
As well as producing its own productions, the Palace Theatre also co-produces and programmes other performances throughout the year. It’s programme is a blend of new writing, dance theatre, theatre for families and children and theatre for young people (aged 16-25) from both established and emerging artists and companies. The Palace Theatre also supports the research and development of many new projects each year.
