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.

I’m not going to lie about it, for the price the seat was alright. Now that I’ve done it, I don’t think I’d do it again. It was labelled as restricted but when you can’t see half the stage I think it should be even cheaper than it is if I’m being honest.... More

Because the pit is directly in front of the stage rather than under it you are a little bit away from the front so you only have to look up slightly making the view really good. The legroom is great as theirs only the front of the pit in front, but personally... More

The seat itself was not the most comfortable I've sat in in a theatre but it was ok for the show so long as you got up in the interval. Leg room however was amazing. View of the stage was perfect except when actors stood to the left, then they blocked... More
