FAQ’s

I have an E-Ticket, what does this mean?

This means your tickets have been paid for and the tickets have been sent in PDF form to your email address provided when ordering. You do not have to print your tickets, we are able to scan the QR code from your mobile device.

What is the difference between the Upstairs Room and the Main Room?

If the event is listed as being in the Upstairs room, this means the event is in our smaller room making it a more intimate experience.
If the event is listed as being in the Main room, this means that the event will be held on the big stage and more people.

Is there assigned seating?

This is an event by event basis. Please check the event ticket page you are interested in to see what options are available for our Main Room events or feel free to contact us via phone at 508-797-9696 or email at info@thepalladium.net . Our Upstairs room is standing room only.

Occasionally, our building is rented out by an outside promoter and they may decide to split the building into sections, charging more for the more desirable locations. If this is the case, the different ticket prices will be clearly listed on our event listings.
