Venue: The Birmingham Hippodrome

The Birmingham Hippodrome is an independent, not-for-profit, registered charity that averages over 500,000 visits annually, making it the most popular single auditorium in the UK. With no regular public revenue funding, it is home to Birmingham Royal Ballet and DanceXchange, presents all of Welsh National Opera’s repertoire, welcomes the best in international dance, West End and Broadway musicals and the world’s biggest Pantomime. Birmingham Hippodrome is currently expanding its Creative Programme building on its successful work in schools and in the community, and with free outdoor performances. With partners including Arts Council England, Birmingham City Council and private funders, the Hippodrome has recently enjoyed co-producing new events including Summer in Southside, 4 Squares Weekender (to celebrate the opening of the Library of Birmingham), International Dance Festival Birmingham and The Voyage (for the London 2012 Festival).
