Victoria Warehouse at first may not seem like an obvious choice for music events but we’ve been hosting them for over 4 years now and after delivering countless successful gigs we’ve become a bit of a pro. We have the same infrastructure in place that you’d expect at any other music venue; late license, in-house security and crowd control, paramedics and first aid room, secure fencing, production offices, green rooms & dressing rooms, separate box office, optional in-house production and venue manager. We also provide a cloakroom facility, merchandise area, toilets plus both fixed and mobile bars in all rooms.
Room 1 is our largest capacity room at 4,500 and with 6 additional individual rooms Victoria Warehouse has the capability of having multiple acts perform at the same time taking the total capacity to 9,000 people.
Our mezzanine level overlooks Room 1 and with its separate entrance, private individual booths with bottle holders and upgraded toilets its the ideal VIP space.
Recently in 2015, Victoria Warehouse saw the start of a season of incredible warehouse parties in collaboration with Sankeys.
