Birmingham Hippodrome is a cultural hub that gives everyone the chance to experience unforgettable theatrical performances, arts and culture.
We are an independent not-for-profit cultural charity that reinvests its surpluses into enriching the cultural life of the region.
Our vision is a world-class Birmingham cultural scene with the Hippodrome centre stage.
We now reach over one million people a year through our on and off stage programmes of work, digital presence and performances as well as through our extensive Learning and Participation work; providing differing touch points for the people of our region to connect with a Hippodrome experience.
Run by a board of voluntary trustees, we are an independent charity with no revenue funding from public sources. We frequently invest in projects alongside Arts Council England and with Birmingham City Council. Generous support is received from the business community through sponsorship and other partnerships; from individuals through donations and memberships; and from grant-making trusts for special programming and infrastructure projects. As a major employer in the region, we play a leading role in the Southside Business Improvement District.
