Venue overview

Located in the centre of city, a stone’s throw away from Liverpool Lime Street rail station, Liverpool Empire opened its doors in 1866. With a seating capacity of 2,350, the venue is Britain's largest two-tier auditorium and features four bars, customer lifts and accessible facilities. Renovation work includes a new building, joined to the theatre by a glass atrium, which contains the Box Office, bar and three floors of multi-functional space used for events, parties, conferences and performances.

Liverpool Empire hosts various types of entertainment, including variety shows, musicals, operas, concerts and plays. Notable past productions include Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Royal Variety Performances, and Frank Sinatra and The Beatles, who played the venue several times during their early careers. The venue’s vast auditorium is split into the Stalls and Circle, each containing over 1,000 seats. Unlike other theatres, Liverpool Empire’s seating faces the stage head-on rather than on a curve, providing great sight-lines throughout the venue.

Good value seats

Seats throughout Liverpool Empire Theatre offer good views, but bargains can be found toward the ends of rows and at the rear of each seating section. These seats are usually cheaper but still offer a good view. Sitting in the rear of the Circle offers excellent views for a discounted price.

Premium seats

Seats in the front sections of the Circle offer the best overall views in the theatre, especially for large-scale productions. For those who want to be up-close to the action, the front centre of the Stalls offers a great close-up view without any restrictions, due to the raised stage.

A good clear view of the entire stage (and the pit). Being so close you can see lots of details and the stage isn't that high so you won't get neck ache. As it's only the pit in front there's lots of leg room and the seat itself is comfortable. More

A good view of the stage, slightly to the side but you shouldn't miss anything (unless it's right at the back of stage right) The legroom is good especially for a circle seat and the new seats are comfortable. The front of the circle isn't high so doesn't... More
