Following the recent government guidelines, Birmingham Hippodrome has taken the difficult decision to continue with the temporary closure of the venue to the general public until 20 April, 2020. As this is a rapidly evolving situation, we will be constantly reviewing this date over the coming weeks.

The safety and health of our staff and visitors is our number one priority. We will continue to follow any recommendations from the relevant authorities and implement all appropriate instructions accordingly.

During this period of temporary closure to the general public, suspended activity includes all productions in our auditorium and Patrick Studio, the Open Doors foyer activity, coffee bar and off-stage educational activity.

Please see below a list of productions and other ticketed events affected during this timeframe:

*For rescheduled performances we will arrange for replacement tickets to be sent to your given address. If you are unable to make the alternative date/s, you will be given details of the option of a refund in an email communication.

We are in daily discussions with the producers and the ticket sales team will be in touch with all those affected to discuss options for each production as soon as possible. The team will be dealing with a high volume of bookings, so we kindly ask all ticket holders to avoid contacting Birmingham Hippodrome directly to minimise incoming inquiries. Please bear with us during this time and thank you for your on-going patience.

If you are attending a performance post the date of April 20, any further updates or information will be shared as soon as it is available. Please do keep checking our website and social media channels for the latest updates.

Thank you for your continued support:

This is a worrying time for the arts industry and as an independent charity we receive no regular public funding, relying on support of our audiences and donors to deliver our life-enhancing work both on and off-stage. The implications of this situation will be long-lasting for the Birmingham Hippodrome staff and volunteers, our wonderful industry and indeed the rest of the world.

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. Thank you for your continued support.
