Watched Gilbert​ ​&​ ​Sullivan's The Sorcerer here last night, very good performance. Good facilities at the theatre had a couple of drinks in the bar beforehand. As with all theatres space is at a premium but the staging was well done.

Saw a panto in this beautiful and intimate theatre. The bar, loos, corridors etc are quite small/narrow but are modern and very clean. The theatre is beautiful and elegant and again quite cozy. A (really really horrible) car park is behind the theatre.

Our first panto for 25 years. Great fun Alladin . Thought the scenery was excellent with plenty of sparkle. The cast of 7 worked really hard. Full audience which added to the atmosphere some good jokes well done all we will be back

Wonderful traditional panto with energetic cast really getting audience involved - perfect for children but adults will have a great evening -Terence Frisch as Widow Twanky is superb and his performance alone is worth the price of a ticket

So what I love most about this old theatre is the feeling of going back in time, it immerses you into the place and the palace theatre is a favourite, the show was good and well done,

We had an amazingly enjoyable experience. We loved the performance, my 6 year old grandson had seen it before with his school, he couldn't wait to go again and it lived up to his expectations, thank you Watford Palace Theatre crew.
