≫ COVID Safety Info ≪
▪︎ We are anticipating that attendance will no longer be limited by Covid protocol requirements. Should the public health situation change and require increased safety protocols, the venue may need to implement safety plans for the night and will update ticketholders at that time.
▪︎ The bar will provide table service. Instead of going up to the bar, a server will visit you to take orders and to clear empty glassware.
▪︎ Please be mindful of others in the venue, and that everyone has a different comfort zone as we begin sharing physical space again.
In the event that public health restrictions prevent this event from going ahead, all tickets purchased for this event will automatically be valid for the next rescheduled date. Refunds will be made available as needed - please email [email protected] to arrange.
≫ Safer Spaces ≪
▪︎ At the VEC there is zero tolerance for any type of racist, sexist, ableist, fatphobic, transphobic or homophobic behaviour. By purchasing a ticket and attending this event, you agree to conduct yourself with the utmost respect for everyone at this event. In the event that you do not, you may be asked to leave without a refund.
▪︎ If you feel uncomfortable at any time, please let a VEC staff person know and we will try to support you in the best way possible.
≫ Land Acknowledgement ≪
▪︎ We would like to gratefully acknowledge that the territory on which this event takes place is on the traditional, stolen, unceded land of the Lekwungen and W̱SÁNEĆ peoples. We acknowledge the rich cultural history of the many peoples and rituals that have been affected by the ongoing process of dispossession and colonialism. We hold this understanding in our interactions and engagements with this land and its people.
≫ Accessibility ≪
▪︎ Our seating is a combination of high tables, bar stools, and cocktail tables with chairs. If you require assistance with this, please make a note when purchasing tickets or contact us at [email protected] and VEC staff will do their best to accommodate.
▪︎ There are three multi-user, gender-inclusive bathrooms with stalls. One bathroom has a larger stall with its own sink and a grab bar (more details in the ‘Bathrooms’ section).
▪︎ The Victoria Event Centre currently does not have an operational elevator, and there is one long flight of stairs at the venue entrance. The only way into the VEC is up 27 wood stairs, 11″ deep, 6″ high. There are wooden 2.5” handrails 38” up the wall on each side of the staircase (54” apart, so not graspable on both sides at once. See further details in the ‘Getting Inside’ section)
▪︎ If you would like to attend the event but require assistance with accessing the space, please contact us at [email protected] and VEC staff will do their best to accommodate.
▪︎ Inside the Victoria Event Centre there is a gender inclusive wheelchair accessible washroom that technically fits necessary size dimensions, but is missing a bar and a handrail beside the toilet.There are two stalls in the washroom, but only one of these has been renovated to meet 5'x5' wheelchair clearance.
