We came here for the 'Visible Touch' Genesis tribute band and they were very good. There was no allocated seating, but we came about 30 minutes before the performance was due to start and got a couple of good seats fairly close to the front.

If you haven't tried a live broadcast of a live theatre performance then give it a go. It's works very well and is just like being there. The Electric Palace with its Art Deco ambience and welcoming staff is just the place to experience it....More

The Electric Palace is a true one-off, an unusual old-fashioned gem of a place with all mod cons. A great venue for your events - the manager and staff certainly know how to pull out all the stops to make things go well.

What s beautiful cinema building! In continuous use since 1926, updated but retaining a wonderful art-deco feel and appearance. Saw The Producers 50th show and it couldn't have been better. A wonderful asset for the town and such a versatile venue. Truly wonderful!
