We’re moving home!

FurAfter six years we’re moving home!

We’ve really enjoyed bringing you behind the scenes gossip, backstage photos, blogs from the stars, patron and staff news but it’s time for a change.

As from 1 January 2016 we have moved our blog onto our  Birmingham Hippodrome website, we’ll still be bringing you plenty of news and gossip but just on a different site.  Don’t worry though the old WordPress blog will still be live so you can access our archives.

If you are a regular reader do follow our  blog here where you can read the first blog of 2016 from our Chief Executive Fiona Allan.

When a new blog is posted we’ll still alert you on our Facebook and Twitter accounts.

Don’t forget to tell your friends we have moved.

Thanks for reading our blog and we look forward to welcoming you to our new site.

Looking for a last minute Xmas present? Here’s some theatre themed gift ideas!

With Christmas just one week away, we have some great last minute gift ideas for you! We’ve all been there – looked online, trawled the shops and still no idea what to get for those those tricky friends and family members… well, we have the answer!

The theatre lurvvie

You know they love the theatre, but no have idea what shows they’ve already booked!  Get them a Birmingham Hippodrome Gift Voucher and you have the perfect answer. Or why not indulge their passion with a Friends membership so they can enjoy theatre discounts, advance booking and special events!  From £40.

The indulgent treat

Indulge their sights and senses by purchasing tickets to their favourite show and adding on something extra special.   Why not book a surprise meal in our Restaurant or add on a champagne and canapes package?  With mouth-watering food and award winning chefs, they will be in for a treat!  From £8.50

The experience junkie

You know they love experiences that money can’t buy, and that theatre is their passion.  Why not combine the two and buy them a Patrons Membership.  From £25 a month your gift recipient can enjoy exclusive theatre benefits, invites to special events and a closer relationship with the theatre they love! Sorted!

The difficult one

You’re always stumped for an idea of what to get them – they’ve had the usual gifts and all the ‘gift experiences’ money can buy! If you know they love the theatre, why not surprise them with a named seat in the auditorium?  A named seat makes a perfect surprise gift and better yet, is yours with an inscription of your choice for 10 years.  From £25 a month.
