Manchester Palace Theatre About

The Palace Theatre of Varieties opened on Whit Monday 1891 and cost its owners the then colossal sum of £40,500. In the late 1970’s the Palace Theatre underwent a major refurbishment and re-opened in 1981 with Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Jesus Christ Superstar and has since then retained its position as the premier provincial touring venue.

The Palace Theatre, Manchester, is one of the main theatres in Manchester. It is situated on Oxford Street, on the north-east corner of the intersection with Whitworth Street.

The Palace Theatre and its sister theatre the Opera House on Quay Street are operated by the Ambassador Theatre Group (ATG).

ATG continues to make the safety and security of its customers and staff a priority. As such, please bear in mind that we may undertake bag checks, so recommend you leave extra time to avoid queues. Suitcases/large rucksacks are not allowed into the venue, so please do refrain from bringing these to the venue or, alternatively, store any large luggage at Piccadilly station. Many thanks for your cooperation.
