The Palace Theatre Manchester, Oxford Street, is one of the main theatres in Manchester, England. The theatre, originally known as ‘The Grand Old Lady of Oxford Street’, opened on 18 May, 1891, having been built at a cost of £40,500.

During the early part of the 20th century it came into its own, with artists such as Danny Kaye, Gracie Fields, Charles Laughton, Judy Garland, Noel Coward and Laurel & Hardy making appearances.

It is now one of the best equipped and popular theatres outside London. In its repertoire it hosts major touring musicals often with major celebrities and performances of opera and ballet along with various other comedy acts and one night concerts.
