Have now visited the theatre several times and find it a great venue. The shows they have are as good as you see in London's West End with out paying the same price. Seating is good and staff always helpful

What an amazing experience this was. A brilliant production with fantastic costumes and scenery and just amazing dancers. Very dark and gothic in places with touches of humour.
Matthew Bourne introduced the evening with a dance by amateurs studying locally and amateur choreographers too. So proud to be a Brummie to see this array of talent and a packed theatre supporting the ballet. The Hippodrome put on a wonderful show

I have probably visited every West End Theatre, as well as a great many more theatres in this country, and the Hippodrome rates as No.1. in my estimation, and fortunately, it is the most convenient theatre for us to get to for seeing West End shows and other productions. The staff also deserve a mention as they are always very helpful and polite, both on the phone and in person, and musn't forget to mention the catering facilities, food being excellent, in lovely surrounds too. Always look forward to a visit to the Birmingham Hippodrome, have been attending there for over 60 years!!!!!
