Halifaxpeople    Today May 4th 2020

On This Day

On May 4th  1934  Serious fire at Halifax Palace Theatre

The Palace Theatre stood on the corner of Ward's End. It was a music hall as well as a variety theatre and was also known as the 'Palace' and the 'Hippodrome' but was also known as the sweetest theatre in the north due to the fact that when it was built in the cold winter of 1902/3, they added sugar to the mortar to stop it from freezing.

The theatre was repaired after the fire but it did eventually close on the 30th May 1959 and demolished in 1960 to be replaced by shops and offices, a poor substitute.

During lockdown, many of you will probably had time for a good old spring clean, throwing out any clutter, but don't throw it yet. We are always looking for old newspapers, books leaflets or anything that has news of our area in the past. So, please consider this website before you throw anything.

Thank you
