Palace Theatre Manchester

Following a record-breaking 24-year run in the West End, Willy Russell’s Olivier Award-winning musical Blood Brothers comes to the Palace Theatre, Manchester. Produced by Bill Kenwright, and featuring direction by Bob Tomson and Kenwright, the musical has wowed audiences across the country and now returns for a celebratory 30th anniversary UK tour. A captivating, heart-breaking tale of twins separated at birth, Blood Brothers is the 1983 Olivier Award winner for Best New Musical.

Blood Brothers is the sinister story of twins who grow up on opposite sides of the tracks, only to meet again with tragic consequences. When a young mother, Mrs Johnstone, is left to bring up her seven children on her own, she becomes a housekeeper to a wealthy couple to pay her way. But as she discovers that she is pregnant with twins, she enters a secret and deadly pact with her employer.

With an iconic score including “A Bright New Day”, “Marilyn Monroe” and the show-stopping “Tell Me It’s Not True”, Blood Brothers stars Lyn Paul as Mrs Johnstone, after she last played the role at the Phoenix Theatre. With a stellar cast, the legendary musical plays a tour across the UK, stopping at Manchester’s Palace Theatre for a limited week-long engagement.

The majority of the Stalls falls under this price, as seats offer good views, due to a decent rake in the seating. It is recommended to sit as centrally as possible. Those who want to feel fully immersed should sit toward the front.


Most of the Circle is this price, as good views can be achieved throughout. It is recommended to sit as centrally as possible. Legroom is limited and those wanting extra space should select an aisle seat.


Boxes in the Grand Tier are this price, as they offer a premium theatre experience, with decent views of the stage in a private box.


Rows S-T and seats at the ends of rows K-R are this price, as they are slightly restricted view, due to the Circle overhang and side-angled views of the stage. Rows L-O are this price.

Centre seats in rows B-H are this price, as they offer the best views in the section. You can see the entire stage due to a good rake, although the stage can feel distant and legroom is limited.




Rows U-V are this price, as they are affected by the Circle overhang. Legroom may seem limited and it’s worth sitting further forward for only slightly more money. Rows P-Q are this price, and can feel obstructed by the Grand Tier overhang. There is limited legroom and it is best sit as centrally as possible to avoid this. Most seats in the Grand Tier are this price, toward the ends of every row and in rows J-K. These seats are mildly restricted view, but can be good for a bargain.

Seats in rows V-W are this price, as they are severely affected by the Circle overhang, which gives a letterbox effect. Seats at either ends of rows Q-R are this price, as there is limited legroom and the view can be affected by the Grand Tier overhang.
