Birmingham Hippodrome’s new Young Community Drop-In Sessions have been developed by our Young Advocates.

Suitable for anyone aged 14+, these sessions have been designed to be creative outlets for young people and offer spaces to relax, connect with others and feel welcome.

The sessions are open to young people of all levels and abilities and our Young Advocates are ready to support anyone who would like a buddy during the session or to have a chat in advance to find out more about the sessions. Please email
