Jack and the Beanstalk

A GIANT of a pantomime!

Come and join us at The Victoria Theatre Halifax for the biggest panto of them all with the fabulous Jack and the Beanstalk.

The Trots are so poor they don’t have a bean to their name, and what is more there is a giant terrifying the village. Come and see if Jack can defeat the giant, win the heart of the girl he loves and turn the Trots’ fortunes around.

Once again The Victoria Theatre will have all the ingredients for a perfect family panto, with a dastardly villain, a hapless comic and a hilarious panto dame, as well as fabulous musical numbers and bags of slapstick fun!

Book your tickets now for this ‘moo-vellous’ family friendly panto which will leave everyone aged 4 to 104 feeling full of ‘beans’!

The Side of Stage Performance (Wednesday 15 December at 10.15am) aims to improve access to the pantomime for hearing impaired people who use British sign Language (BSL). The interpreter stands stage left and interprets the performance for the audience.

Integrated Signed Performances (Tuesday 28 December 2021 at 6:30pm & Wednesday 29 December 2021 at 2:00pm) include two BSL interpreters who are involved in the action on stage and take part in the performances!

The Relaxed Performance (Thursday 30 December 2021 at 10:30am) is designed to be welcoming to everyone and especially to adults and children who may feel unable to access theatre performances for a variety of reasons, for example, parents/carers with noisy infants, people who need or want to move around and/or vocalise during the performance, people with dementia, autism or with other complex access or inclusion needs.

School Exclusive Performances (Tuesday 14 December 2021 - Friday 17 December 2021) - We offer 7 performances exclusive for school groups. We aim to give everyone a fantastic seasonal treat and make the visit as safe and stress free as possible for your school staff, pupils and parents. We will organise everything for you, from booking the pantomime tickets, arranging return coach travel to and from your school and can even pre-order interval ice creams for your class!

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 ADULT 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.
