Important tour update – Announcement from Show of Hands –
With less than a month to go to the start of the tour it seems that lots of people are still understandably hesitant about returning to some live music venues and it is with heavy hearts that we realise that the projected income simply cannot sustain the larger four-piece line up featuring Miranda and Cormac.
So rather than cancel or postpone shows the evening will now feature Steve and Phil in their original duo format, with the first set focusing on songs from the forthcoming album ’Singled Out’ with the second set being a mix of new material and classic ‘Show of Hands’ anthems.
We do hope that you understand the situation. Times are hard for everyone in entertainment at present and we haven’t taken this decision lightly, but with your support and goodwill we hope that this will still be a popular and successful tour and Steve and Phil look forward to seeing you out there.
The Victoria Theatre continually strives to improve accessibility. As part of the many services the Theatre offers there is a minicom line to the box office, level access to the stalls and stalls bar, specially adapted toilets, wheelchair spaces in the auditorium and just recently we have introduced an infra-red system. This innovative system allows the hearing impaired to individually control the sound of the performance from wherever they are sitting.
Following recent improvements to the stalls seating area, we now offer easier access and better viewing locations for wheelchair users. So you can be assured of a comfortable and enjoyable experience, we have level access to the stalls from Commercial Street and provide two accessible toilets on the stalls level.
We are pleased to offer a new e-mail service that provides wheelchair users with advance notification of shows going on sale. Please ask our Box Office Team for more details.
Access can now be offered to the Green Room Bar, Q and other areas of the venue by means of a stair climber. Please ask our Box Office Team for more details by calling us on 01422 351158.
The Victoria Theatre has an induction loop for hearing aid users in the auditorium and Box Office.
Additionally the Victoria Theatre now offers an infra-red audio system allowing customers in the Stalls and The Circle and to adjust individually the volume of the performance.
Our Box Office Team staff will advise you on both systems please call our Minicom number for more details – 01422 361584.
We now offer versions of our seasonal brochure in both Braille and large print. Please contact the box office to request copies to be sent to you.
Guide dogs are welcome and we will be pleased to provide a bowl of water on request.
We are pleased to offer a complimentary ticket to essential carers of people with additional needs. Please contact the Box Office for details.
For our annual pantomime, we offer assisted performances which include:
Side of Stage Interpreted Performance
A SoS interpreted performance aims to improve access to the pantomime for hearing impaired people who use British Sign Language (BSL). The interpreter stands down stage left and interprets as much of the performance as they are able to the audience.
An Integrated Performance is for hearing impaired people who use British Sign Language (BSL) where 2 interpreters are used. Rather than standing on the side of the stage both interpreters are rehearsed into and take a full part in the performance by shadowing the main actors on stage.
A relaxed performance is tailored to ensure that individuals and families who may not usually attend the theatre and is designed to meet the specific needs of people who may, for example:
Touch Tour Performance
A Touch Tour takes place prior to the main performance and is aimed at improving access to the performance for people with a visual impairment. A touch tour involves a number of visually impaired customers meeting some of the production company and cast before they attend a performance. During the meeting customers will be offered an opportunity to touch and feel the costumes, wigs, props and other aspects of the production and to have these elements of the performance described to them. There is also a chance for customers to hear the voices of some of the key characters and listen to the story of the pantomime if they are not already familiar with it.
