Brighton Hippodrome: Heritage and prospects

Thursday 15 February 2018
St George's Church, St George's Road, Brighton
19:00 for 19:30


A lavishly illustrated talk by David Fisher about the history and the current status of the campaign and project to keep the Hippodrome as a theatre.
• Many people have asked if they can look inside the Hippodrome. Unfortunately that is not possible but this is the next best thing.
• The talk will show, in over 200 images, the history of this endangered Grade II* listed gem—the finest unused theatre in the country—through its days as a skating rink, circus, variety theatre, bingo hall and heritage at risk. It will include pictures and information not previously known or revealed.
• The potential and plans for its future will also be explained by David Fisher, who has been involved throughout the campaign to save and restore the theatre and has done extensive research into its history.

Our friends make donations to OBH from the ticket sales or collections at their events. If you would like to do this, please send an email to or contact Jo Jameson 07815 443174.
