If you’re joining us here at Watford Palace Theatre as part of one of our productions or projects, hello! We can’t wait to see you. We’ve included information below that might be useful. Our digs list is updated regularly but if you can’t find something to suit you, have a little Google (or Bing…no favouritism here), there’s plenty of places to stay in and around Watford. We’ve included a ‘Best of Watford’ document with some local independent restaurants and services. If you need anything else during your stay remember, we’re here to help. To access the digs list talk to your Company Manager or email our team using the button below, and we’ll get back to you.

Request the digs list

We’re always looking for people in and around Watford who are interested in joining our Digs List, to offer short term accommodation to actors and creatives working at the theatre throughout the year. We like our colleagues to feel at home when they join us. So if you’re friendly, thoughtful and a homeowner with spare accommodation and want to earn additional money, please complete the form and if you meet the requirements, we’ll provide your details to our visiting actors, directors, technicians and creatives. Easy-peasy!

What your guests would expect from you:

  • Their own room with use of a bathroom. You would need to provide bedding & a towel
  • Access at all times – Actors & Stage Managers can work unsocial hours, so would need their own key
  • Most digs would provide tea & coffee but expect guests to bring their own food & toiletries
  • Use of the kitchen. People often like to cook properly – not just heat up ready-meals. Ideally they would need allocated shelves in a cupboard & fridge for food
  • Use of a washing machine – if possible
  • Parking – if possible
  • WiFi – if possible
  • A TV in the bedroom is always a benefit, so that guests can have their own space. An armchair is also welcome, if there’s room
  • To provide a receipt on payment

What you can expect from your guests:

  • To be respectful of living in your house
  • To tidy up after themselves and leave things as they find them
  • To be as quiet as possible – particularly when coming in late at night
  • Prompt payment – on whatever day is decided between you
  • To be mindful of when you (and your family) might need to use bathrooms/kitchen/dining room etc.
