Watford Palace Theatre is a registered charity. We have been at the heart of the Watford community since 1908.

The theatre has given the local community entertainment and inspiration for 113 years; championing  new work on-stage and in the streets of Watford.

“When it was was first built in 1908, the Palace was a modest music-hall, evolving through a period as a lively repertory theatre until today, the Palace is a producing house with a national reputation.”

– Ian Scleater, ‘The Story of the Palace Theatre Watford’
