In response to the Government’s recent statement advising the UK public to avoid unnecessary social contact, including by not attending theatres, Calderdale Council has taken the precaution of closing the Victoria Theatre with immediate effect for a minimum of 12 weeks. This event is therefore postponed.
Josh Widdicombe's show has been re-scheduled to Tuesday 30 March 2021 (from Saturday 16 May 2020)
We're pleased to confirm that your existing tickets will be valid at the rescheduled date and we hope you can join us. If you have chosen to collect your tickets from the Box Office at the time of booking, your tickets will still be available for collection up to the date of the rescheduled show.
If you are unable to attend, tickets must be returned to the Box Office by 31 July 2020 for a full refund however we urge you to stay at home and stay safe and tickets should not be returned until it is absolutely safe to do so – The Theatre and Box Office are currently closed and we are doing what we can from home to keep our customers informed. Once we return to work we will administer the refunds so please bear with us in this unprecedented situation.
- Victoria Theatre tickets bought from the Box Office - these will need to be returned to the Box Office for a refund (as this event has been postponed and to allow tickets to be resold).
