Do you remember the first time theatre took your breath away?
Join our 1899 Club and help us ensure that we can pass on the magic of theatre and live performance for many more years to come.
A small monthly donation is all it takes.
Birmingham Hippodrome has been changing the lives of local people through the magic of theatre since 1899. From our roots in Circus and Variety to our role today as a world-class theatre, we have been at the beating heart of local communities for decades.
By making a monthly donation you will support the theatre you love, ensure its long-term future and give something back to your local community.
Your donation will help get us back to creating One Million Hippodrome Moments each year. In 2019 we reached 500,000 people through our world-class theatre programmes across our stages and a further 500,000 children, young people and vulnerable communities with low-cost or free activities. We want to return to this level of support as soon as we safely can. Explore below how your donation will make a difference, and join today.
Donating just £10 a month will help us transform lives through the power of theatre and the arts. And if you can Gift Aid your support, you will add a further £30 at no extra cost to you, creating an annual gift of £150!
