Watch out for some frightened sheep, lots of excited children and a fantastic amount of toilet paper in this rip roaring new musical.

His observations have led him to success on television and radio , as well as on the live circuit and at Festivals far and wide.

People will know Fred from QI, Have I Got News For You and Mock The Week on television, as well as Radio 4’s Newsquiz, Unbelievable Truth and Just A Minute….as well as his 2017 stand up show “Fred at the Stand”.

To celebrate his 30 years of stand-up, Fred is touring Scotland with his “30 YEARS ON” tour.

His 2017 stand-up shows were legendary and in many reviews the shows were described simply as “A Masterclass”.
Irish Country Show 12/10/2018 - 12/10/2018 Palace Theatre
Following a sell out tour last year to nightly standing ovations, 4 of Ireland's favourite Country Music Stars will appear on stage at the palace in one super show. Featuring the popular Louise Morrisey, Stephen Smyth, Anthony Mc Brien and Curtis Magee who between them have scored countless accolades, notched up over 30 No 1 songs and have toured all over the world. The 4 stars will showcase their trademark hit songs in the company of the fantastic band Keltic Storm
The Spirit of Bad Company & Free 20/10/2018 - 20/10/2018 Palace Theatre
Free Again, a five piece ensemble of musicians, will perform their spectacular new show at The Palace Theatre on Saturday 20th October 2018 that gives you a concert experience of 100 minutes of pure Bad Company and Free nostalgia.

This is not a heavy rock night by any stretch, the music is more than that…much more. It’s a delicate blend of vocals, guitars and piano punctuated by a dynamic rhythm section to produce timeless, melodic classics. This concert promises to be a fantastic night to remember for all Free and Bad Company fans, young and old, new or long-standing.

The line-up, made up predominantly from the touring band Hotel California Scotland, sympathetically and faithfully recreate the authentic sound and feel of the ultimate Paul Rodgers back catalogue.

With the same exacting attention to detail that has made Hotel California Scotland such a popular crowd pleaser in the theatres across Scotland, Free Again are set to do it all again with a brand new, never been attempted show.

Expect a set that includes classic tracks ranging from Feel Like Makin’ Love to Wishing Well; All Right Now to Can’t Get Enough. You will also hear an acoustic section with beautiful piano melodies and vocal harmony. The back catalogue is exceptional, appealing to audiences of every age, evoking memories and touching the hearts and souls of each new generation.

If you liked what we did with the Eagles music, there’s every chance you’ll love this too!
The Dolls - "Dragged Up" 26/10/2018 - 26/10/2018 Palace Theatre
THEY’RE BACK! The tan has barely faded from Agnes and Sadie’s thick skin and they’re in trouble again, and left lip-synching for their lives.

Missing money, an unlucky handbag and nutcase gangsters are just a few of the disasters they’ll have to dodge as the Dolls are dragged through a glittering underworld filled with rivalries, rhinestones and rammies on a camp, crazy, gusset drenching adventure of queen sized proportions!

Mistaken identities and secret disguises abound in this highly anticipated sequel. Will the gallus gals be able to keep up with who’s who?
Will long brewing family resentments be resolved? Will The Dolls solve the mystery of the missing dug and most importantly, will their dormant 1980’s disco dancing skills save them from The McKray twins, Scotland’s fruitiest, nuttiest gangsters?


THE DOLLS in DRAGGED UP!

Not for the fainthearted or the weans under 16.

Sleeping Beauty 24/11/2018 - 29/12/2018 Palace Theatre
With last year’s Dick Whittington being described as having “all the ingredients for a great Christmas night out” (Kilmarnock Standard) The Palace Theatre are planning another spectacular panto with the magical tale of Sleeping Beauty.

The show will star River City’s LEAH MACRAE as Fairy Flutterby, and back by popular demand are FRASER BOYLE as Nurse Senga and GARY MORRISON as Hilarious Hector.

As a result of a curse from the evil Carabosse, Princess Beauty pricks her finger on a spinning wheel and falls in to an enchanted sleep. Will Nurse Senga, Hector and the dashing Prince Lorenzo be able to save her before the hundred years are up and the Princess’ fate is sealed?

Once again the show will have all the ingredients for a magical family panto with spectacular sets and costumes, fabulous songs and dances and bags of slapstick fun!


Concession tickets are available to those under 16, students, in receipt of the state pension, or registered disabled. Other concessions maybe available (such as family tickets) but must be purchased through the Box Office directly either in person or over the phone.

Thank you,
LUNA 30/11/2018 - 30/11/2018 Grand Hall
An enchanting theatre experience about friendship, the moon and being brave in the dark for 2 – 5 year olds and their families.

Luna is bored up in the sky by herself with nobody to play with. Although she is surrounded by stars, they never quite understand her - it’s certainly lonely being the only moon.

One night, as she’s racing among the stars, she spots a young boy hiding from shadows which move like monsters on his bedroom walls. Luna decides to slide down from the sky to make friends with the boy. Together they go on an adventure of LIGHT and DARK to help him overcome his fear of the night-time.
