A flexible performance space at Birmingham Hippodrome
The Patrick Centre was completed during our award-winning redevelopment, endowed with a generous gift from The Patrick Trust. An adaptable studio theatre seating just over 200 people, it is fully accessible with air-conditioning and state-of-the-art technical equipment.
The Patrick Centre is home to DanceXchange, one of Birmingham Hippodrome’s partner organisations, and a national centre of excellence for dance. DanceXchange is one of nine national dance agencies committed to presenting and promoting the best in dance and bringing together artists, companies, educators and venues to benefit people of all ages, abilities and cultural backgrounds.
The Patrick Centre for the Performing Arts is used for research, rehearsing and creating new work, professional development, education and performance. This new studio theatre is a great space to bring any small scale production to fruition ready for touring. It is a totally adaptable room that can be set out as a traditional performance and auditorium with raked seating or as an installation style space.
