In 2010, the Mansfield Palace Theatre will be celebrating its 100th birthday! The year will consist of events and celebrations to mark such an achievement.
In May 1997 the Palace Theatre closed to the public of Mansfield and entered a seven month period of redevelopment. During that time the theatre was partially demolished and rebuilt.
The redevelopment project cost more than £2.9 million, funded partly by an award of nearly £1.8 million from the National Lottery through the Arts Council of England, with an extra £64,000 from European funding and investment from Mansfield District Council.
Following the redevelopment the Palace Theatre has been designated as a regional mid-scale touring venue, meaning that it will seek to attract an audience from a 40 minute drive-time by presenting a broad range of work.
Car parking can be found at Clumber Street, Toothill Lane, Toothill Road and Handley Arcade. All these car parks are supervised. Please use the following link to open a map showing these car parks: Location Map. You can buy a special advance car parking ticket when you book your show, which allows up to 4 hours parking at Toothill Road, Toothill Lane or Handley Arcade car parks for just £1.50, saving 50p.
The car parking charge is correct at present, but as of 1 April it will change to 5 hours for £1.80, a saving of £1.70.
