The broad sweep of the two balconies at the London Palladium is enabled by Frank Matcham’s use of semi-circular cantilevers as support.
As there are no pillars, every seat has an uninterrupted view of the stage and the balconies curve around towards the proscenium providing an intimacy between performer and audience unmatched by any other venue. The rich plaster decoration and rose marble finishes are opulent but at the same time create a feeling of comfort and security. With 2,296 seats across three levels – Stalls, Dress Circle and Upper Circle – the auditorium is one of London’s largest, but retains a cosy and friendly atmosphere.
