The impact of COVID-19 has been devastating for theatres. As an independent charity we receive no regular public funding, and, with almost all of our income coming from the sales of tickets for our productions, we currently have no revenue stream.

We want to be there for you when this crisis is over and continue to bring your favourite productions to Birmingham, but, without support, the implications of this situation will be long-lasting for Birmingham Hippodrome and the region.

We would therefore be hugely grateful if our affected customers would kindly consider an exchange, credit on account or a donation of some, or all, of the cost of your ticket to support Birmingham Hippodrome’s future. We understand that this is an extremely difficult time for many, and this option is not possible for everyone.

Ways you can support us;


We are so grateful for any donations big or small. You can donate to Birmingham Hippodrome on our website here or call 0121 689 3068 to donate by phone.

Exchange or credit on account

If you had tickets to see any of our affected shows here, we kindly ask if you can consider exchanging your tickets to a rescheduled performance date or accepting credit on account so you can book tickets in the future.

Buy gift vouchers

You can buy gift vouchers on our website here. Our gift vouchers are valid for two years so you can spend now and enjoy later when the curtain rises again.

Amazon smile

You can also support us by shopping through Amazon Smile.

Simply sign up here and select Birmingham Hippodrome Theatre Trust as your charity of choice. For every purchase you make, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases to us as your chosen charity.

Thank you so much for all your support, we really miss our fantastic audiences and we can’t wait to see you all again when the curtain rises.
