The Other Palace is the newly re-branded St James Theatre. Built in 2012, The Other Palace is purpose-built to ensure great views from throughout the auditorium. Set across the Stalls, this ensures there is no obstruction from a Circle overhang, lighting rigs or support pillars. With just one level of seating in the main theatre, all seats offer clear views of the stage, with a steep rake allowing you to see past the audience member in the row in front. With a maximum seating capacity of 312, rows reach from A-N. The auditorium is similar to an intimate studio, which is why the venue is suited to smaller-scale musicals and plays. Row A is extremely close to the stage and can be perfect for those looking for an immersive experience!
Ticket prices change depending on the production, although a general price bracket system is in place, which is similar for each production. Cheaper seats can be found towards the ends of rows and towards the rear of the auditorium in rows M-N, although these still offer great views. Premium seats are located centrally. Please see our price guide below for a more in depth seating guide.
