The Victoria Hall halifax, did not have a proscenium arch at all until after 1964. I had an open platform. Addition of the proscenium was a careful inclusion in the 1964 rebuild. The theatre also has a flat floor, infact one of the largest surviving sprung dance floors in the north of England alongside the Royal Hall Bridlington and Blackpool Tower and The Winter Gardens. This ‘feature’ has been seen as a ‘drawback’ for theatrical productions, as has the stage, which although it is aproximately 48 feet wide, is ‘shallow’ compared to the overall proportions of the building
