Welcome to the Hippodrome

  One of the UK's largest community run theatres

Thanks for visiting

Welcome to the website for the Todmorden Hippodrome Theatre.  Situated in the Upper Calder Valley, between Manchester and Leeds, we're one of the largest community run theatres in the UK.  Here you can find information on all our events and how you can help secure the future of this wonderful 480 seat Edwardian Theatre.


We're delighted to announce that we are planning to reopen the Hippodrome in June 2016 following all the flood repair work.

It'll be great to be back in action so fingers crossed...!


Tickets are now on sale for our first production when the 'Hip' is back!

The Accrington Pals will be staged from 28th June to 1st July at the Hippodrome.  This poignant play will be performed exactly 100 years since the first day of the Battle of the Somme .  Click here for more info
