A very special day

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the team at the Electric Palace for making our special day very special indeed. Most especially we would like to express our personal thanks to the staff for their tireless and cheery efforts throughout the weekend which allowed us to relax and enjoy the day.

A truly unique incredible venue!

Emilie and all the staff at the Electric Palace brought our wedding day to life. Emilie was fantastic in working with all the elements we brought to our wedding (Casino, Cocktail Bar & Magic Mirror) & allowing the day to run smoothly, leaving the whole experience a stress free one. All of our guests were astounded with the venue & the 1920's feel to it. The foyer filled with a nostalgic feel has the space for our guests to chat, relax & enjoy the cocktail bar and casinos. We had a disco in the auditorium & was recommended a local lighting technician who really created an incredible atmosphere! We would both highly recommend the Electric Palace to any couple who want a unique & incredible venue.

The most perfect backdrop to our wedding

The venue itself looked amazing, the work that is going in to this venue is heart warming! It provided the most perfect backdrop to our wedding. It’s an unusual venue for a wedding, one I have to say that my wife spotted the potential in immediately. It oozes character and with the team in place behind it, I’m sure will go on to deliver many more happy occasions – as well as a venue with a great line up of performing artists of course!

The Electric Palace is a true one off

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 staff certainly know how to pull out all the stops to make things go well

Our wedding was the very first ceremony & reception to be held at the Palace. The venue is just incredible. Beautiful in every way. Our guests were blown away, my new husband and I could not have wished for a better day.
