Welcome to the Hippodrome

  One of the UK's largest community run theatres

Thanks to all at the Hippodrome for providing ... one of the happiest, most worthwhile and interesting evenings I've spent at the theatre in a very long time

Thanks for visiting

Welcome to the website for the Todmorden Hippodrome Theatre owned and run by the Todmorden Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Society (T.A.O.D.S.).  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.


The UK Government may not be able to lead a goldfish to water but when it comes to putting on Shakespeare, it looks like Todmorden Hippodrome know what we're doing. The NODA review of the Merchant of Venice is nothing less than stunning, read all about it here

Thanks to Jon Richardson 
Everyone who attended the sell-out show came out saying it was one of the best gigs they'd ever seen and we all want to extend our thanks to everyone who made the show and the last minute date change possible.
