Previews from 16th July, opens 24th July 2021. Ends 30th August 2021.

Five magic acts showcase their skills, headed by the brilliant mind-reading Chris Cox and "Britain's Got Talent" star Josephine Lee.


Not available.

Based on paying FULL PRICE (no discount!) for tickets, site writers and contributing guests have ALSO created the colour-coded plans for "value for money," considering factors like views, comfort and value-for-money compared with other same-priced seats available.

Some notes for this extra event appear below. For a full discussion, opinions, reviews, notes, tips, hints and advice on all the seats in this theatre, visit the theatre page (link at the top of this page) and click on "BEST SEAT ADVICE" (on the left of your screen).

On the plans below:
Seats in GREEN many feel may offer either noticeable value, or something to compensate for a problem; for example, being a well-priced restricted view ticket. Any seats coloured LIGHT GREEN are sold at "premium" prices because the show producer thinks they are the best. The monkey says "you are only getting what you pay for" but uses this colour to highlight the ones it feels best at the price, and help everybody else find equally good seats nearby at lower prices.

Seats in WHITE, many feel, provided about what they pay for. Generally unremarkable.

Seats in RED are coloured to draw attention. Not necessarily to be avoided - maybe nothing specific is wrong with them, other than opinions that there are better seats at the same price. Other times there may be something to consider before buying – perhaps overpricing, obstructed views, less comfort etc.

Please remember that cheaper seats often do not offer the same view / location quality as top price ones, and that ticket prices are designed to reflect this difference.

To enable "social distancing," available locations may vary.

Palace Theatre value seating plan

In the stalls, the front three rows are currently not on sale. Premium price seats are fairly reasonable, but you could go in front of them in row D or off to the sides from row H back or behind in row L and have a similar - cheaper - experience. Likewise, take rows Q or R at second price over row P - same view for fewer bananas.

Dress circle is similar - row D is perfect, so no need to pay more for central A to C. Skip H in favour of cheaper row I.

Upper circle seats are mostly second price - take anything in the stalls and dress circle for the same cash unless short and needing the height to see over those in front. Skip the back two rows as there are better views for the same money. Out to the ends of rows A and B are cheaper seats. B7 and B38 next to the more expensive ones are the way to go, otherwise look at the balcony. 

Balcony front seats are cheaper than those towards the back - the stage extends forward and you won't see much happening at the front of it (vital for a magic show). Go as far back as you can, taking F before G (even if you will miss something from that row) to save a few pounds. Take side block after central block in all rows.

The monkey advises checking performance times on your tickets and that performances are happening as scheduled, before travelling.
