TOUR: Manchester Palace Theatre
When an email came through from the Palace Theatre offering a guided tour i jumped at the chance. I have a love hate relationship with going to the theatre, on the plus side…. amazing venues and fantastic shows. On the down side… very crowded, dark and always “no photos please”
So this opportunity was a dream come true… the only thing that would have made it perfect was the cast of The Lion King appearing with us on stage.
Our tour guide Carole was brilliant, so enthusiastic and you could tell love for the theatre oozed out of her. Explaining she had worked her way up from usher to head of front of house, Carole lived and breathed the theatre… and this made her tales of the theatres past come to life.
The whole experience left me keen to delve further into the history… as well as wanting to become a part of this magical world that is the theatre.
Since attending the tour we have now also booked onto the Opera House Theatre tour too… watch this space!
