Watford Palace Theatre is a registered charity that has been at the heart of the Watford community since 1908. The theatre has provided engagement and entertainment with and for the local community for 113 years; championing exciting, challenging, and pioneering new work on-stage and in the streets of Watford.

After a recent short interlude, we’re excited about the evolution of the theatre and its work – great things are coming!

We now offer a programme of online and digital events created in response to the coronavirus pandemic and aimed at engaging audiences of all ages and interests, around the world.

Freelance Season – supporting the work of freelance artists within the Three Counties region, providing them with access to specific tools and opportunities to help them promote their work to audiences.

Secret Garden project – an innovative project for Watford Palace Theatre, in association with Wizard Presents to enable children and their families to access theatre whilst at home.

Production photo from the all female production of Much Ado About Nothing. The photo is taken straight on and shows the stage with a false, half destroyed brick wall in the background with a festoon of white lights hanging from the ceiling. On the stage there are 2 couples dancing, a violinist playing and a character in the background wearing a tuxedo and a gold mask.
