Kilmarnock’s Palace Theatre is always a fantastic night out – whether you are a fan of drama, comedy, variety, dance, music or shows for children, the Palace Theatre has something to suit you.

The Palace Theatre and neighbouring Grand Hall have seen a host of big names over the past few years – Gerry Cinnamon, Kevin Bridges, Sean Lock, Dorothy Paul, Lesley Joseph, The View, Calvin Harris, Johnny Marr, Primal Scream, Kasabian, the Happy Mondays, Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott and Billy Connolly to name just a few! The Grand Hall is also part of pop history -  The Sweet penned Ballroom Blitz after a raucous night in the venue in January 1973.

The Café Bar is the perfect place to relax with drinks before heading to the show. You can also pre-order your interval drinks to beat the queue.
