Visiting the venue...

1st April 2009

Over the last few months we've been talking alot with the venue via email and telephone (as well as having visited the venue several times previously), but on 1st April we had our first official visit as the new producers of the Victoria Theatre, Halifax pantomime.

We were made so welcome by Tim, the venue manager, and Emma and John from the Marketing team.

It was a lovely sunny day, so we took a snap of the theatre to show you...

Thank you so much to the team at the Victoria Theatre for choosing us. We can't wait to work with you!
