Whitney’s musical legacy is brought to life in this critically acclaimed tribute show described as “mind-blowingly spot on”. 

Fresh from her show-stopping Britain’s Got Talent finals appearance, Belinda Davids returns to the UK with her acclaimed stage show. 

The two-hour production will fill you with joy, nostalgia and wonderment as it takes you on a heartfelt journey through Houston’s greatest hits including ‘I Will Always Love You’, ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody’, ‘How Will I Know’, ‘One Moment in Time’, ‘I Have Nothing’, ‘Run to You’, ‘Didn’t We Almost Have It All’, ‘Greatest Love of All’, ‘I’m Every Woman’, ‘Queen of the Night’, ‘Exhale (Shoop Shoop)’, ‘Million Dollar Bill’ and more.

With the accompaniment of a live band, backing vocalists and choreographed dancers, plus state-of-the-art sound, lighting, vision and theatrical effects, this is a beautifully crafted tribute to one of the world’s most revered singers.

The Greatest Love of All has already wowed audiences across the UK, Europe, Middle East, Asia, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand, and continues to gather glowing reviews worldwide.

This special once-in-a-lifetime concert event will leave audiences wanting more and talking about it for years to come. Don’t miss the chance to experience it for yourself.

Be stunned by the breathtaking vocals of Belinda Davids – a RiSA chart-topping artist in her home country of South Africa. She featured on Fox TV’s ‘Showtime at the Apollo’, BBC1 TV’s ‘Even Better Than the Real Thing’ and most recently in 2020 on ITVs Britain's Got Talent.

Davids beat almost 15,000 other hopefuls to take on the role and it was her own eternal love of Whitney that prepared her for the show. Exposed mainly to R&B and gospel as a child, Davids was innately drawn to Houston’s musical style. Singing professionally from her early teens, Houston songs became a fixture in Davids’ live shows. “I think I’ve sung at least one Whitney track in almost every live show I’ve ever performed,” says Davids.

Though she eventually carved out a successful career as a chart-topping solo artist and a session vocalist for such artists as The Temptations, Keri Hilson, Keyshia Cole, Monica and Johnny Gill, in her earlier days Davids encountered resistance from many industry professionals who were unsure how to work with her because she looked and sounded so exactly alike Houston.

The ultimate realization of Davids’ affinity with Whitney occurred during a show in Hong Kong. Following a recital of ‘I Will Always Love You’, the audience was so astounded by her performance that they demanded she sing acapella to prove she wasn’t lip-syncing to a Whitney track.

Now representing her idol on stage, Davids feels destined: “I’ve essentially prepared my whole life for this show and I feel privileged to be able to honour Whitney in such a way.”

Victoria Theatre COVID Vaccination and Negative Test Policy 

The Council and Theatre staff are excited to head into a busy autumn season at the Victoria Theatre and finally host full scale events after being closed for over 18 months. We know that many of our customers are eager to return to live entertainment and would like life to go back to ‘normal’. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic means that there is a need to continue to protect ourselves, our audiences, and our community, and make some difficult decisions that will help us to prevent the spread of COVID.

For a safe, considerate, and enjoyable experience for everyone the Council has decided to implement the following from the first full size, main house event on Thursday 26 August 21.

We are asking all ticket holders to provide ONE of the following:

  • Proof of double vaccination via the NHS App using the COVID Passport OR
  • Proof of a negative lateral flow test, logged within 24 hours of the event OR
  • Proof of a negative PCR test, logged within 24 hours of the event

You can provide these via the NHS App, which can be used to log all lateral flow and PCR test results. It also records vaccinations and can be used as proof of vaccination. You can also request a paper copy of your Covid Passport using the NHS App.

Please note: The NHS App is different from the NHS Test and Trace App.

We appreciate that not everyone is able to use apps and will therefore also accept the following as proof:

  • Text / email confirmations of negative test results logged with the NHS OR
  • A timestamped photograph of you with your negative lateral flow test OR
  • A COVID vaccination card showing double vaccination and matching photo identification

To further protect ourselves and each other, we are continuing with the programme of enhanced cleaning and continuing to encourage visitors and staff to wear masks while moving around the venue.

As we are all aware, theatres and live entertainment venues have been hit particularly hard by the pandemic, we were some of the last places to open and are likely to be the first places to close should the need arise for a return of restrictions.

We really want to make sure that we can remain open, to bring back the joy of live entertainment and shared experiences to all, so that we can all feel as ‘normal’ as possible under the circumstances.

We greatly appreciate your support, kindness, and cooperation during this time as we continue to protect ourselves and each other.

If you have any queries about your booking, please email box.office@calderdale.gov.uk and we will respond to your enquiry as soon as possible. We are currently operating on reduced hours in the box office so recommend that you email instead of calling or attending the box office.

Please refer to our FAQs for more information.

The door times for all events are an hour before the show is due to start and we will be checking everyone as they come in. Please arrive as early as possible, as there may be queues.
