The Victoria Theatre offers easy access and excellent viewing locations for wheelchair users with a level access point to the stalls from the Commercial Street entrance. There is also access to the Stalls Bar and accessible toilets on this level. Please note, due to the layout and age of the building, there are a lot of steps to the other spaces, making them not easily accessible by wheelchair or to people with limited mobility. Please discuss your requirements at the time of booking so that we can advice appropriately.
