As we waved goodbye to Miss Saigon, we celebrated with a spectacular sold-out Saigon inspired corporate dinner.

In our beautifully styled, cherry blossom filled Studio, 100 guests enjoyed a live pianist and a fusion French-Vietnamese dinner created by award-winning Head Chef Melissa Menns.

Hosted by Fiona Allan and Chair of Development Board with Martin Guest, the guests were joined post-show by the leads from the show for a chance to chat and take selfies.

We raised over £1,500 in our prize draw for Hippodrome CREATIVE which supports our ongoing work with disadvantaged young people. Prizes were donated by Highfield Wellness and Beauty, Penta Hotel, The Edgbaston Boutique Hotel and Cocktail Lounge.

The evening was sponsored by The Forum, Birmingham’s  first purpose built, build-to-rent scheme on the site of the former ice-rink in Pershore Street. Rockspring Property Investment Managers is funding the development of The Forum, Birmingham’s first build-to-rent scheme, comprising 334 apartments.

Anita Jerkovic, European Director at Rockspring, said: “Southside is a vibrant part of the city and The Hippodrome provides an anchor. As new investors in the area we are keen to work with our neighbours to support and promote the community. To this end, we look forward to developing our partnership with The Hippodrome over the coming year.”

We had a sublime evening welcoming guests from EY, Irwin Mitchell, Pertemps, Consulting Rooms Birmingham, Posca, FleetMilne Property and we’d love to thank AVA Event Styling and Plato for their support.
