Welcome to AAC!
Increasing the value of VR1 or C1, or adding a resistor in series with VR1, should do what you want.
What component values are you using?
Incidentally, a mains voltage of 230V (rms) has a peak voltage of about ±320V.

Yea I agree that it should be more than 230volts so it should fire at 290volts or similar... I'm using 500k potentiometer and 0.1uF cap.
