Victoria Theatre

Victoria Theatre

The Venue with the Most Architectural Impact

Designed by Municipal engineer John Bennett during the era of Victorian Revivalism, the Victoria Theatre and Concert Hall is a complex of two buildings and a clock tower joined together. The influence of the period can be seen reflected in its design, which includes features like Italianate windows and rusticated columns. 

One of the best examples of colonial architecture, the foundation of the complex was first laid down in 1862, and officially inaugurated by the Governor of the Straits Settlements, John Anderson, on 18 October 1905. 

Since its inception, Victoria Theatre has been the chosen venue for some of Singapore’s most prestigious cultural events like the Singapore Arts Festival, Singapore Sun Festival and weekly performances by the Singapore Symphony Orchestra.
