Getting into the Venue
The Apollo Victoria main entrance is located on Wilton Road, directly opposite Victoria station. There are four steps up from street level to the main foyer. An alternative wheelchair entrance is via the Vauxhall Bridge Road entrance. A wheelchair lift provides level access to the foyer facilities and an accessible toilet. The lift also gives access to the Dress Circle. There is a maximum weight limit of 200kg, with dimensions of 29”x33”.

The Stalls and Dress Circle seating must be accessed by stairs, which have handrails in place throughout the theatre.

Customer Assistance
If requested, the Apollo Victoria provides a dedicated Access Host upon arrival, who will assist customers throughout their visit.

Customers must notify a member of staff on arrival in order to use the wheelchair accessible entrance. It is recommended that customers wishing to use wheelchair facilities should arrive 45 minutes before the performance begins.

There is an in-house wheelchair that can be reserved when booking, which staff will make available. Wheelchair users wanting to transfer to a seat must arrange this at the time of booking. Transfer seats are available throughout the Dress Circle. Staff are not able to assist with lifting during a transfer, but will store wheelchairs for the duration of the performance. For those who cannot leave their seat during the interval, staff can take orders from the bar and bring them into the auditorium.

How to Book
Those who require specific access, facilities or seating requirements must book in advance directly through the Apollo Victoria Box Office. It is important to contact the theatre prior to your visit in order to notify staff and check availability as wheelchair spaces are in high demand. Disabled patrons cannot book premium price tickets, however all other seats in the theatre are available at £35 each, for both the patron and their companion.

Good Value Seats

The front row of the stalls are often sold as ‘Day Seats’, meaning they go on sale for a reduced price from 10am on the day of performance. You must arrive in person to buy them, and it is advisable to check before going to Victoria. Bear in mind that sitting so close to the stage may cause a bit of neck-ache as you look up!

Premium Seats

For a panoramic and clear view of the stage the back of the first half of the stalls has to be recommended. Here you are far enough back to absorb the wonderful set and special effects, yet still feel fully involved in the performance.

  • Wicked

    This spellbinding musical continues to delight audiences with the untold story of the witches of OZ. Outcast, Elphaba, forms an unlikely friendship with popular Galinda at sorcery school however a meeting with the Wizard of Oz will set them on very different paths.

    Booking from 11 Feb 2016 to 29 Apr 2017

Overview

The Apollo Victoria is a beautiful Art Deco building which originally opened as a movie theatre in the 1930s. It became a musical theatre venue in 1981, and was home to one of the longest running musicals of all time, Starlight Express from 1984-2002. The theatre now reflects its current occupier Wicked complete with Elphaba green lighting and decorations, providing the audience with a unique theatrical experience from the second they enter the venue. The Seat Inspector feels however that the addition of character related cocktails at the theatre bar is a step too far… Despite its size the auditorium is divided into only two levels of almost equal capacity. Sightlines are on the whole very good, thanks to the venue being designed as a movie theatre. Wicked is a very visual show, and though every effort has been made for the set to fill the space, sitting in the back section of the circle can feel very removed from the characters.
