Birmingham Hippodrome

Surprisingly, the Birmingham Hippodrome is a theatre located on the Hurst Street in the Chinese quarter of Birmingham, United Kingdom.

The first venue of Hippodrome Theater was building of assembly rooms built in 1895. A stage and circus ring together with a miniature of Blackpool Tower was added in 1899 and the enterprise named the “Tower of Varieties”. The Blackpool Tower was removed in 1960 so the tourists can’t see it anymore. It was reopened as the “Tivoli” in 1900 after it previously failed and it finally became “The Hippodrome” in October 1903.

The current building has a neo-classical auditorium with 1900 seats which was designed by Burdwood and Mitchell in 1924. Associated Architects and Law and Dunbar-Nasmith substantially rebuilt the theatre’s exterior in 2001. The building features a bar, a restaurant and disabilities access.

The theatre is known as the home stage of the Birmingham Royal Ballet but it also hosts a wide variety of other performances like visiting opera and ballet companies, drama, touring West End shows and pantomime. A major West End touring show is housed by the Hippodrome every summer. Some of this consists of Cats, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Mary Poppins and Starlight Express.

The nearest train station from the Hippodrome is the New Street station, at just one hundred yards from the theatre.

Radisson SAS Birmingham, Holiday Inn Birmingham City, Ibis Birmingham Centre and Britannia Hotel Birmingham are only some of the most beautiful hotels around the Hippodrome, rates starting from 39 pounds per night.
