Bridport Electric Palace

The Electric Palace is a 500-capacity art deco gem, straddling the chasm between the pomp and volume of a heavyweight show and the intimate atmosphere of a club.

Since becoming a full-time live venue and cinema in 2008, the Palace has welcomed names from The Kills and Gruff Rhys to Grandmaster Flash and was home to PJ Harvey and her band for a month-long pre-tour rehearsal. The independently run Grade II-listed masterpiece, completed in 1926, has become a magnet for the thinking band and their fans. The opera house acoustics have an uplifting effect on performances – and performers. Although old and worn, the incredible character and acoustics of the Palace are second-to-none, meaning it still beats modern, purpose-built venues hands down. Recent additions include a new screen and digital projector.
