The Victoria Theatre opened as a concert hall in 1901, having been designed by Clement Williams.
Very European in style it became a cinema at some point before 1939.
It has two horseshoe balconies and an ornate flat ceiling with a very deep curved cornice. There is much original, and very attractive stained glass throughout the building, including a spectacular laylight in the upper foyer.
It was purchased by the local authority in 1964 and adapted into the Civic Theatre by the addition of a full stage behind the proscenium arch. There is a fine Hill organ installed and the Victoria is used both for concerts and theatre shows.
Like most of the other main entertainment venues in this town it is located on Ward’s End. It was recently renamed the Victoria Theatre and is a Grade II Listed building.
