The Birmingham Hippodrome Theatre offers a calendar of events throughout the year designed to either enhance enjoyment of the shows we present or to simply enable our customers to celebrate special occasions in a magical theatrical environment.
Many events are educational, often linked to Birmingham's Year of Lifelong Learning 2003, giving people the chance to develop creativity and to discover brand new skills.
Our recent £30m redevelopment has created some of the finest conference and hospitality suites in the Midlands, and with backstage tours and opportunities to meet the cast we really can offer a unique experience. The Hippodrome Theatre offers a wide range of packages that can be tailored to suit your requirements exactly.
As well as our 1850 seater main auditorium we also have the 209 seater Patrick Centre along with a wide variety of high specification conference suites of various sizes. Fantastic customer service and technical support is coupled with first class catering from Leith's.
If you're not amongst the hundreds of people who have experienced the Birmingham Hippodrome Theatre Tour yet, then what are you waiting for?! Our Official Tours launched in March this year to much critical acclaim from both the press and audiences. They last around 1 hour 15 minutes, and give you the chance to go behind the scenes in a way never before allowed.
"Absolutely wonderful. thoroughly enjoyable and informative. More of it please.".
