Birmingham Hippodrome

Half a million people agree; Birmingham’s flagship theatre is the nation’s favourite too. More seats are sold at the Birmingham Hippodrome than by any other British theatre each year including the West End. 

The dazzling 2,000-seat work of art regularly welcomes the cream of British musicals and the UK’s biggest, most spectacular pantos.

The Birmingham Hippodrome also hosts stunning seasons from the Welsh National Opera and is the place to be enchanted by the Birmingham Royal Ballet.
