Good news! Whilst there will still be roadworks today on Etruria Road, we have been informed that there will be a one way sytem in place and therefore, there will be access to our car park.

Please, however, still allow additional time for your journey.

We apologise for any inconvenience.

2 May

There are some planned roadworks happening on routes to the theatre that may affect your journey to us over the coming weeks.

Staffordshire County Council will be carrying out resurfacing work between Borough Road and Jubilee 2 from 3-9 May, and on Etruria Road between 5-11 May. There will still be access to reach the theatre, however it may be that there are some diversions in place during this time. For all customers attending to see a show between these dates, we are recommending that you allow a little extra time for your journey when visiting the New Vic during these periods.

We’ll be keeping up-to-date with any changes to the planned roadworks and will highlight any updates here on our website –and on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
