Frequently Asked Questions


How do I make an enquiry

The best way to make an enquiry is by emailing the Victoria Theatre Box Office at or by calling the Box Office on 01422 351158. You can call the Box Office at any time and if there is no-one to answer the phone, please leave a message and a member of the Box Office team will call you back when the Box Office opens.

Whilst we also have the facility to be contacted on social media, we do not recommend this method for any ticket related enquiries.

Is there a booking fee?

All ticket prices include a theatre support fee, which goes towards important restoration and maintenance of our theatre. There are no additional fees on top of the published ticket price when purchasing your tickets directly from the Victoria Theatre website or Box Office.

What should I do if my tickets haven’t arrived before a show?

If you have selected print at home, tickets will be sent to you by email straight away. Please make sure you check your email junk folder too. If you have selected COBO, you can collect your tickets from the box office any time up to the event. If you have opted for your tickets to be mailed to you and they haven’t arrived by the date of the event you have booked for, please contact the box office to arrange a replacement ticket.

Can I refund or exchange my tickets?

The Victoria Theatre does not offer refunds or exchanges unless a performance is cancelled. You will be given the option to purchase TicketPlan protection for your tickets at an extra cost.

What is booking protection and what does it cover?

TicketPlan is a third-party ticket protection service that will provide cover for your tickets if you are unable to attend an event due to any of the reasons listed in the TicketPlan agreement. We recommend that you familiarise yourself with the cover by viewing their policy here before purchasing TicketPlan or making a claim.

If you have tickets to collect or would like to visit a bar or kiosk, please do this no later than 10 minutes before the start of the show. Please make sure that at the very latest you arrive before the show is due to start, as latecomers may not be permitted into the auditorium until the interval. 

Will I be allowed in if I’m late?

Latecomers may not be permitted into the auditorium until a suitable break in the performance.  On occasions you won’t be permitted until the interval, so please arrive early.

What are the age restrictions?

Each show sets its own age restrictions, and we recommend you check the show page on the website for more information; however, anyone under the age of 14 must be accompanied by a paying adult.

Up to what age can children come for free?

For events that permit children, children aged 1 and under can come for free, unless stated otherwise. Please always check the individual event page before booking.

Do you have booster seats?

Yes, booster seats are available on entry to the auditorium, and are provided on a first come first served basis. We kindly ask that you return these to the collection point at the end of the performance.

Can I take photographs or record the show?

To protect the copyright of our artistes, the use of photography and recording equipment is strictly prohibited. On the occasions where photography is allowed or encouraged, we will let customers know with in-theatre signage and/or announcements.
