  • Have been to the Birmingham Hippodrome a number of times over the years. Excellent venue for all sorts of shows including the big musicals. This was my first visit for a while to see Alan Carr. Have seen a number of comedians in the past. Inside well set out, seats comfortable, bars well stocked, prices what you would expect at a theatre. Staff friendly and helpful. Situated by the Chinese Quarter and in easy reach of the city centre and New Street Station.
  • My favourite place. Friendly, safe and secure! Excellent seating areas all with good views of the stage. There are seats in the foyer and surrounding areas, plus a bar, cafe and a restaurant are all available. First time back to the Theatre since lockdowns, i felt safe and it was so good to be back!! Everyone wore masks as asked by the Theatre before visiting. Seating distancing was good. Good air conditioning and entry and exit points. Don't hesitate to visit!!!
