Theatre lights go dark for the planet…

This Saturday (29 Mar), all unnecessary lighting outside and inside Birmingham Hippodrome was switched off between 8.30pm-9.30pm as part of Earth Hour 2014.

Earth Hour was famously started as a lights-off event in Sydney, Australia in 2007. Since then it has grown to engage more than 7000 cities and towns worldwide encouraging individuals, communities, households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights for one hour as a symbol for their commitment to the planet.

Take a look at the gallery below to see our theatre in a rare state of darkness and to find out more about Earth Hour click here.
