Audiences, history lovers and curiosity-seekers from across were invited to delve deeper into the incredible history of the theatre on Sat 9th September as part of Heritage Open Days and Birmingham Heritage Week.

In celebration of our current Broadway blockbuster, Miss Saigon, visitors were invited to book on one of two FREE Heritage Talks all about The Birth of the Mega Musical.

As always, our dedicated team of Hippodrome Heritage volunteers were on hand to escort audiences on a magical ‘mystery’ tour through the theatre’s extensive archives, re-tracing the genres evolution through old programmes, posters and touch tables.

You can view a selection of photo highlights from the day by clicking on the gallery icon above.
