      The Manchester Evening News in 1980 published stories by readers who had memories of the Palace Theatre of years gone by. My grandmother, Florence Sheridan (nee Berriman) was one of the readers who sent her story in and it was printed. My gran was an avid reader of the newspaper as her husband Francis, and both her sons (one being my father), were all employed as printers for the Manchester papers. Here is my gran's story:

      I have fond memories of the Palace Theatre going back many years to when I was a little girl (I am now aged 84). My father, Arthur Berriman, worked in the evening at the theatre for extra money, as this was always needed in our family of four girls and a boy. Times were hard then and we got very few treats, and so when we were told we were going to the Theatre (complimentary tickets) we talked about it for hours. My father was the commissionaire and he looked very grand in his uniform at the front entrance calling out, 'This way to the circle and stalls'. I remember Fred Karno's troop and I think Charlie Chaplin was with him. Where the orchestra was placed there was a lake and waterfall and they has bathing beauties swimming around the water and making flower patterns. My late husband was a page boy there when he was 13. He collected many photos of the artistes.
