When it comes to five-star spectacle and unbeatable production values, musicals don’t come much bigger than Miss Saigon, which is why the heat was truly on for our star-studded press night reception last night.

Featuring bespoke cupcakes, red carpet, a Vietnamese street-scene complete with bamboo accessories and rickshaw and a stunning Studio 5 re-vamp inspired by the bright lights of Dreamland, the star-studded event saw over 120 local press, media, celebrities and VIP guests visit Birmingham Hippodrome to celebrate the opening of our sizzling Summer blockbuster in style! 

If you were with us for the ‘press night of the year’ on 1 Aug, be sure to check out our Press Night Flickr gallery for the chance to spot yourself embracing an authentic taste of Saigon…right here in Southside! 

From the response we’ve had on twitter, we think it’s safe to say our guests had no trouble getting into the spirit…

A huge thank you to Selfridges Birmingham for the supply of outfits worn by our staff throughout the evening and to Chitty Cakes for yet another sensational set of cupcakes.
