The Birmingham Hippodrome (Birmingham) Reviews
Newest Review: ... to open early afternoon meaning if you arrive at the venue an hour or so before the show starts then you can just go inside, sit down and wait. One thing I like about this venue is that I don't recall ever being searched on my way in so I've had no problems taking in bottles of Pepsi and my own nibbles which saves you a fair bit of money. Upon stepping inside this huge, glass fronted building you're greeted by a spacious room where a ticket collection desk is located as well as a number of members of staff who will assist you if required. There's a couple of steps which then take you to the first bar area of the venue as well as stair cas... more

One thing I do like about where I live is that both Birmingham and Wolverhampton are within very easy reach via train meaning I have easy access to a good number of venues hosting a varied range of live events. One of these venues I have been to a fair few times is The Birmingham Hippodrome, my most recent visit being last night to see the hilarious Kevin Bridges. The Hippodrome is located in Birmingham's city centre and is just a ten minute walk from New Street Train Station (which is pretty much a walk down a straight road, turn left, a walk down another straight road). There are a good number of bus stops around the venue as well as a car park a few ... Read the complete review

Birmingham Hippodrome is the only major theatre that I have attended and I think it's fabulous. I go to see musical productions there once a year, and have done so for the past 3 or 4 years so my review will mainly be based on musical productions. As one of the major theatres in the country, all of the big name touring productions always do a run at the Hippodrome. In the past few years, they have been the stage to Cats, High School Musical, Les Miserables, Joseph, The Sound of Music and many more. Having never been to the West End, I am still very satisfied with the level of professionalism of the productions held here at Birmingham. ... Read the complete review

Last night I was fortunate enough to attend a showing of Les Miserables at the Birmingham Hippodrome theatre. I was really impressed, not just with the performance but with the theatre itself as well, and so I thought it deserved a review! The theatre is situated in the centre of Birmingham and is easily arrived at by car by following the signs to Theatres or City Centre. You can park in various places, including a car park at the Arcadian Centre which is literally a few feet away. We parked in the multi-storey car park on Pershore Street which was about a four or five minute walk away and very easy to find. It cost around £2.50 for a full evening's parking ...

Birmingham Hippodrome My earliest memories of Birmingham Hippodrome are as a child. My mum would take me every year to see the Christmas pantomine. It was an exciting time. As a child it was a special place, where everything seemed big, exciting and luxurious. High ceilings, engravements on the walls and exciting shows to watch. It was like a palace to me back then, with the big curtains to the stage and the deep colours of thick carpets, and seats. We'd always take lots of sweets and l can never really remember a time where we were disatisfied with the show. I must admit l have a particular preferance towards musicals. So when ever a musical ... Read the complete review

Have gone to shows here since I was a child must have gone at least 15 times over the years! Its ideally located in the centre of Birmingham just a short walk from New Street station, bus stops as well as having a car park a few mins walk away as well as taxis on the corner of Hurst St. The seats are comfortable and spacious. I have sat in all different areas of the circle and stalls and can honestly say you get a good view from everywhere. The two most recent shows I have gone to were Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Aladdin both were amazing and could not fault any part of the experience. I have booked up tickets to this years Christmas show of Robin Hood ... Read the complete review
