Visit the Victoria Theatre for a great night out!

Originally called Victoria Hall, then the Civic Theatre, this impressive building opened on February 8th 1901 with a performance by the Halle Orchestra and since then it has been the cultural centre of Halifax, hosting many musical and theatrical big ‘names’ such as Status Quo, Morrisey and The Jackson 5. Retaining many of its original features, it has undergone extensive modernisation with both accessibility and technical improvements to sound, lighting and Wi-Fi. It is now an extremely comfortable large theatre experience seating over 1500 people as well as having the more intimate Green Room Bar and the VIP lounge.

Tickets are now being sold for a variety of future performances such as the local (and world famous) Brighouse and Rastrick Band on Saturday August 31st, Roger Davis and His Band in Concert on Saturday September 14th, and Shrek The Musical performed by the Halifax Amateur Operatic Society from Wednesday September 18th to Sunday September 22nd.
