Special event brings Trustees past and present together

We will be saying a very sad farewell to our Chief Executive Stuart Griffiths on 3 July after 13 years.

Stuart Griffiths surrounded by Board members past and present, wives and husbands, Hippodrome staff and former Hippodrome theatre director Peter Todd.

Ahead of him leaving,  a special drinks reception was held in Studio 5 which brought together Trustees, past and present, of Birmingham Hippodrome Development Trust and Birmingham Hippodrome Theatre Trust boards to thank Stuart for his enormous contribution to the success of the theatre.

It was a rare occasion to have so many of our dedicated Trustees in one room talking about their time here and their fond memories.

Chairman of Birmingham Hippodrome Theatre Trust John Crabtree gave a speech thanking Stuart before presenting him with a special seat plaque which will be placed on seat M36 in the stalls and reads “Think we got away with it”.

A full interview with Stuart talking about his time here features in the June 25 edition of Birmingham Post and will be available online at Birmingham Post soon.
