Birmingham Hippodrome - Review

Welcome to the Birmingham Hippodrome- the busiest theatre in the United Kingdom! It is best known as the home stage of the renowned Birmingham Royal Ballet, but it also stages some fantastic productions from around the world, be it an opera company, a glitzy West End theatre production or even a hilarious comedy.

The Birmingham Hippodrome has been around since 1895, but after undergoing major renovations in 2001, it now sees an annual attendance of over 600,000 people. It has seen some of the most famous theatre productions in recent times, including Wicked, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, The Lion King, Mary Poppins and We Will Rock You, to name just a few. It also hosts dance troupes from all over Europe, not to mention musicals and media events as well.

The Birmingham Hippodrome also hosts free outdoor performances from time to time, which includes a range of exciting theatre, music, dance and circus performances.

If you book a ticket for an opera performance, you are entitled to a free pre performance talk which gives you an expert introduction to the world of opera, giving you everything you need to enjoy the show.

The Hippodrome is the first theatre in the UK to be registered to ISO 14001, an international standard for Environmental Management Systems, which makes it one of the most eco-friendly attractions in the country.

To put it in a nutshell, the Birmingham Hippodrome is the one stop where all performing artists are dying to play in United Kingdom. Check out the schedule and book your ticket for your favourite production today, and prepare yourself for one enchanting evening. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Birmingham itinerary 1 day.

Birmingham Hippodrome Information

  • You can find out everything you want to know about the show you’ve just watched by asking the cast and creative team themselves. All you have to do is turn up after the performance.
  • To get the best view of a theatrical performance, try booking seats a few rows behind the front row.
  • Instead of parking on the adjacent street, use the Arcadian Car Park, directly opposite the Hippodrome, as it is much safer and has easy access to the theatre.
  • For a truly spectacular experience, you can avail of the Hippodrome’s many theatre packages, which include VIP, Stage Side and Royal Box seating arrangements and a scrumptious meal.
  • Private dining is available for parties exceeding ten people.
  • Don’t worry about spending on refreshments once inside the Hippodrome, as the food and drink is quite reasonably priced.
  • If the food inside the Hippodrome doesn’t satisfy you, try out one of the numerous restaurants nearby.
  • Public Transport: On exiting Moor Street station, use the crossing on the left hand side, rather than the one to the right, and cross over the road towards the Bullring. Follow the road around to the right and walk underneath the underpass. On exiting the underpass, keep walking straight down the road past an entrance to the Bullring and Debenhams on your left hand side. Walk straight down to the traffic lights. Turn left here, crossing Smallbrook Queensway and onto Hurst Street. One hundred yards on the right side is the theatre. Distance approximately 0.5 miles, 10 minute walk.

Birmingham Hippodrome, Birmingham Reviews

  • We were very lucky to get extremely good seats for Matilda a few weeks ago. It was my sons first visit to the theatre and he was absolutely blown away. As a venue it is very impressive. Friendly staff, clean facilities, excellent refreshment selection. For this particular production the stage was very impressive as well. We had a brilliant evening. Can’t wait to see our next show there.

  • Went to see Matilda. The line for the bar was quite long but they blazed through orders pretty quickly. They offer a way to order drinks for the intermission at the start and then pick them up from the table at the back - this is nice in theory but they just put all the drinks on the table and let people collect their own. It's faster but not much faster because you've still got a line of people trying to grab their drink. They also give the drinks in standard glasses which aren't allowed back in the theatre - if you want to sit down immediately after collecting your drink, so you can enjoy the entertainment, you have to exchange your glass for plastic which kind of ruins the point for me.

  • Always a great theatre to watch shows at. Facilities are clean and tidy and staff are always friendly and helpful. Can feel pricey but that's expected at the theatre. My most recent visit was to see Matilda and it was amazing. The seats were also comfortable which helps.

  • Always a host of brilliant shows and lovely ice cream at intermissions. Good disability access for anyone who uses a cane or wheelchair for example. The hippodrome is surrounded by an array of lovely restaurants so you don't have far to look for tasty food.

  • I moved to Birmingham because of the vibrant cosmopolitan atmosphere. The hippodrome has been one of my favourite places to visit ever since. Great selection of shows addressing thr multicultural composition of Birmingham. Very welcoming staff and in addition, the Patrick centre. Love this place.
