Benefit from a FREE Will writing service in return for a donation to Hippodrome Projects.
Wills and Legal Services have a series of qualified paralegals who operate throughout England & Wales and are one of the country’s leading specialists in this field. They offer everything from basic Will making to full estate planning.
They have chosen to support Birmingham Hippodrome Theatre Trust (registered charity No 510842) as their primary arts charity for their National Charity Wills Donation Scheme.
All funds raised through the partnership will go towards supporting the work our access, education and outreach work which reaches 100,000 + children, families and vulnerable communities each year.

What difference will it make?
Rob Macpherson, Birmingham Hippodrome’s Director of Marketing Development said: ‘This is a fantastic partnership for us which will see a donation made to Birmingham Hippodrome for every will made through Wills & Legal Services, helping us expand our range of creative, access and education projects to vulnerable communities across the West Midlands.’
What our supporters say
Patron, Andy Le Marr used the Free Wills Scheme via our partnership with Wills & Legal Services Ltd and had this to say:
“Both my partner and I decided we needed to update our wills…. as a long time supporter of the Birmingham Hippodrome I decided to take advantage of the Wills and Legal Services company to do this for us as the donation from the will service actually helped to support the Hippodrome.
What a fantastic way to show support to such an excellent theatre, by contributing in a small way. As a Supporting Cast Patron of the theatre anyway, I didn’t hesitate to use this service. And what made it more easier was the company representative actually visited us at home, with an appointment to suit us. I would urge anyone who is thinking of making a Will for the first time, or simply updating an existing Will as we were, to use this service and help the theatre in the process.”
What our partners say:
Hannah Evans, Marketing Supervisor said: ‘Wills & Legal Services Ltd are absolutely delighted to be supporting the fantastic work of Hippodrome CREATIVE as part of our Free Wills Campaign. So far, this scheme has already raised £175,000 for local charities. We are so pleased to now be able to extend this scheme to Birmingham Hippodrome, with the double benefit of helping people who may not otherwise feel they can afford to have a Will drawn up and supporting a wonderful charity. Drawing up your Will need not be a daunting process and we would like to encourage anyone thinking of writing a Will to get in touch.’
