Hippodrome Heritage Project underway – can you help?

Birmingham Hippodrome has been in Hurst Street for 116 years and for many people the theatre has created lots of happy theatregoing memories.   However over time a lot of our archive material – posters, leaflets, programmes etc., have been lost or destroyed.

HippodromefrontThanks to a recent Heritage Lottery award we have just launched our Hippodrome Heritage Project.  We have appointed two professional archivists  who,  over the next 12-18 months,  will be working alongside over 30 volunteers to catalogue and digitise the theatre’s archive, collect oral history interviews with performers, staff and audiences and research fascinating stories from the past.

If you can help the Hippodrome Heritage Project by donating memorabilia or participating in oral history interviews please contact the heritage project team on 0121 689 1085 or email archive@birminghamhippodrome.com

Hippodrome Heritage Project is supported by Heritage Lottery Fund, The Mackintosh Foundation, The Oakley Charitable Trust, The Aurelius Charitable Trust, Alan Woodfield Charitable Trust.
