Hippodrome pantomime appeal

“I am fortunate to have had the opportunity to be involved with the Birmingham Hippodrome Theatre as a member of its Development Trust Board. Birmingham is fortunate to have the most successful single theatre in the UK, welcoming half a million visitors every year to an extraordinarily diverse programme of drama, comedy, international dance and, of course, pantomime. With an annual turnover of £18m, the Hippodrome contributes some £40m to the regional economy, yet does so without any public subsidy. For seven years now, the Hippodrome has also run an annual appeal to provide tickets to children who are receiving treatment at the Birmingham Children’s Hospital during the pantomime season to attend the shows and contribute to their general well-being. The Hippodrome theatre is a real jewel of the Midlands. Please support it by visiting it, exploring areas of the arts you are not usually interested in, participating in the BCH pantomime appeal and when you see what a fine theatre it is, support it financially by becoming a friend or a patron. Invest in the arts, invest in your local theatre.”
