Victoria Hall is a concert hall located in Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent, England. Constructed in 1888 to commemorate Queen Victoria's, it is one of several theatres in the city centre and one of two owned by the Ambassador Theatre Group.


Victoria Hall was constructed as an annex to Hanley Town Hall in 1888, as part of the city's celebrations for Queen Victoria's Golden Jubille.[2] Originally the building had a capacity of 2800 people, but this has since been reduced considerably to 644.[2][1] The original building was made of red brick and terracotta.

As an adjunct to the town hall, the building originally had minimal front-of-house facilities. To remedy this, an extension was constructed in 1999, providing an new entrance space with information desk and a café.
