Our annual festive fundraising campaign is starting next week, and we need your help.

The Hippodrome has partnered with The Big Give to bring theatre to 5,000 disadvantaged young people across the West Midlands.

An ambitious target of £30,000 has been set to enable more individuals to experience a world-class production at the theatre for the very first time, take part in workshops and perform on stage.

The festive challenge starts at midday on Tuesday 29 November and ends at midday on Tuesday 6 December. All online donations will be doubled through match funding ensuring each contribution makes twice the impact.

The donations will directly support the Hippodrome Education Network (HEN), which currently partners with 44 primary, secondary and SEN partner schools, and provides creative opportunities to 35,000 young people.

Artistic Director and CEO, Jon Gilchrist explains how your generous contributions can help the Hippodrome Education Network:

Online donations can be made from midday on Tuesday 29 November 2022. Find out more and donate here.
