Palace-Hippodrome Theatre

The Palace was closed for about 6 months whilst £20k was spent on refurbishing and re-equipping. It was due to reopen on 22 November, but did not in fact do so until Monday 27 December 1954.

The advertisement is from Friday, Christmas Eve’s, newspaper - out a day early because Saturday was Christmas Day.

A newspaper report on the up-coming re-opening said that the Palace was back in the ownership of Harry Buxton. He gave the newspaper a statement from a resort in the South of France where he was convalescing from an illness. Buxton’s General Manager was a Geoffrey B Henshaw who was 6ft 5in tall, according to the article!

As the screen was the last item to be put in place, it was claimed that technical work would be going on in the Palace on Christmas Day.
