Event Information

Theatre and dance fans enjoyed a private audience with dance legend, Carlos Acosta in Oct 2017.

A delicious prosecco afternoon tea was in full flow in our award-winning Circle Restaurant, before we were joined by Carlos Acosta himself in an exclusive Q&A with Birmingham Hippodrome CEO and Artistic Director Fiona Allan.

We were thrilled Carlos was able to join us for this special event on the inaugural tour of his new dance company, Acosta Danza.

The event also featured a raffle – drawn by Carlos himself! – and raised over £2,000 towards Hippodrome PROJECTS, reaching young dancers from across Birmingham and the West Midlands.  There will also be the chance to take part in an exclusive fundraising raffle during the event itself.
