This really is a lovely, quaint little place and given how small a town Bridport is, they really do attract some terrific acts. However, I give this place a huge thumbs down due to the management decision/behaviour of patrons during some music events. Having a...More

Superb night out to see Stompin Dave’s Blues3 here, hope they all return in the future- have been to quite a few of their blues nights, never disappointed.

The Electric Palace is a true one-off, an unusual old-fashioned gem of a place with all mod cons. A great venue for your events - the manager and staff certainly know how to pull out all the stops to make things go well.

What s beautiful cinema building! In continuous use since 1926, updated but retaining a wonderful art-deco feel and appearance. Saw The Producers 50th show and it couldn't have been better. A wonderful asset for the town and such a versatile venue. Truly wonderful!

Brilliant venue for seeing bands - acoustics perfect and lovely to have no barriers so able to enjoy the band properly. Lovely friendly staff. Beautiful building. Two sets of toilets but only 4 in total so always a queue. Could do with a cloak room...More

What a lovely building with great character. Felt like we were stepping back in time. We watched the Wurzels- a great evening with a mix of open space and seating. Plenty of bars with plenty of local cider/beer/cocktail choices! Looks like there is always plenty...More
