After much discussion and heartache, we are saddened to announce that Birmingham Hippodrome will not be staging live theatre productions in our main auditorium until 1 February 2021 at the earliest.

We have spoken at length with both Qdos Entertainment and Birmingham Royal Ballet, exploring various scenarios for this year’s pantomime, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, and the annual performances of The Nutcracker. However, it is still not financially viable to host full-scale productions on our main auditorium stage while social distancing remains in place.

We are delighted to confirm that both Jason Donovan and Matt Slack will still be joining the cast of Goldilocks and the Three Bears for its rescheduled dates over Christmas in 2021.

The Birmingham Hippodrome sales team will be contacting all ticket holders for both pantomime and The Nutcracker, along with other affected productions over the coming weeks. Please do not contact the sales team directly.

Whilst we continue to be unable to reopen our main auditorium for live performance, we are actively exploring other innovative and creative ways in which we can engage with our audiences and the people of the West Midlands during this time.

We ask for your patience and kindness at this time as we work through a number of bookings with heavily reduced staff and reduced hours of operation.

Thank you all for your continued support.
