Security checks will be taking place at the Palace Theatre. Please aim to arrive one hour before the start time of each performance in order to ensure that you are seated in good time; there are bars and an official merchandise kiosk to enjoy before the show, and latecomers will not be admitted. No suitcases or large bags (above 41 x 31 x 16cm) will be allowed into the theatre building and there will be no storage space immediately outside. Please make arrangements to leave suitcases and large bags elsewhere. All admissible bags will be searched upon each entry to the theatre. Any dangerous items, professional photography, video or audio recording equipment will not be allowed into the building. Personal cameras will be allowed in the building provided they are kept inside bags inside the auditorium. This is a condition of entry. Please note that food or drink purchased outside of the theatre will not be permitted inside the building. Please note that you will be checked prior to admittance for both Parts One and Two, and if you leave the theatre during the interval you will be checked again prior to re-admittance.
