Project Description

ArtReach is working with Birmingham Hippodrome to bring specialist arts fundraising support to the theatre’s ambitious programme of Outdoor Arts development, and to support the aspirations for ongoing development of the hugely successful International Dance Festival Birmingham.   

The work involves development of a heritage interpretation project to share the fascinating history of this 115 year old theatre (from Tower of Varieties and Circus to modern lyric theatre) and shaping potential European collaborations to increase the scope for Outdoor Arts activity that engages the city’s young and diverse population.

The Hippodrome is the UK’s best attended theatre and hopes to further achieve its audience and artistic development aspirations with input from ArtReach to enhance resources and reach.
